In line with the plans of the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute and the Iran Fisheries Organization for the development of coastal aquaculture and increasing employment as well as considering the favorable climate of the Sistan and Baluchestan province, the aquaculture extension – research project on Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer) farming was conducted in the earthen ponds of Gwadar site. Dr. Hosseini, the head of the Chabahar Offshore Fisheries Research Center, said: In the aquaculture extension – research project by the center in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries of the province, the Asian sea bass were stored in the earthen ponds of Gwadar site. Fish harvesting began in early October 2019, and the results showed that fish had higher growth rates in ponds with less fish density. Based on this, Asian sea bass farming is one of the main capacities for coastal aquaculture development in the Sistan and Baluchestan province and in the earthen ponds of Gwadar site. The head of the Chabahar Offshore Fisheries Research Center added: Asian sea bass is very well adapted to temperatures above 20 ° C and the climate of the province and is less susceptible to disease. In addition, the reproduction and production of this fish species are easier than those of the other fish species. Asian sea bass is carnivorous and can be cultured in earthen ponds. In addition to rapid growth, it has the ability to withstand high salinity range. This aquatic species has great ability to adapt to environmental conditions. Asian sea bass also has a good market in Iran and abroad.
