The research achievements of "Mass production of edible oyster Saccostrea cucullata" in the waters of Hormozgan province were unveiled during a ceremony at the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Ecological Research Institute, dated August 25, 2020. The ceremony was held in the presence of Dr. Sharif Rouhani, the advisor and the deputy director of the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute, Mr. Darya Navard, the head of the Management and Planning Organization of Hormozgan Province, Dr. Kamrani, the president of the Islamic Azad University of Hormozgan Province, Dr. Daryaei, the general manager of the Hormozgan Department of Fisheries, Mr. Masoumi, the president of the Aquatics’ Production and Trade Union of Iran, Mr. Rasekhi, the general manager of economic affairs of the Hormozgan Governorate, Dr. Fati, the head of the Hormozgan province Science and Technology Park, as well as the heads and deputies of the relevant executive bodies. At the beginning of the ceremony, Dr. Mortazavi, the head of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Ecological Research Institute, introduced the current research activities of the research institute with emphasis on the aquaculture sector. Dr. Mortazavi emphasized the importance of localization of the breeding and rearing of marine fish and pointed out to the implementation of the project for broodstock development of cobia at the Persian Gulf Mollusks Research Station and announced: The first phase of this project will be completed by the end of this year. He addressed the role of the research institute in improving the production efficiency of farmed shrimp and said: In recent years, significant activity has been carried out in this field. He noted the growing number of contracts signed with the private sector and announced: The Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Ecological Research Institute is conducting research on the production of native probiotics and we hope to achieve this in the next two years. Mr. Darya Navard thanked the research activities of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Ecological Research Institute and praised its role in managing the challenges facing the province and called for the expansion of activities in order to solve the problems facing the aquaculture communities and fishermen. Dr. Sharif Rouhani, the deputy director of the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute, pointed out to the key and strategic role of the Iranian Fisheries Science and Research Institute and thanked the research activities of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Ecological Research Institute and its key role in the south of the country. In this regard, he explained issues such as introducing vannamei shrimp to the shrimp farming industry and shrimp production in the presence of disease through the implementation of the research pilot project and comprehensive management of the red tide. Mr. Rameshi, the head of the Persian Gulf Mollusks Research Station, announced in a speech: One of the important goals of producing this species of oyster was to increase the production and export of aquaculture products and create jobs in local communities, which was performed with the financial support of the Management and Planning Organization of Hormozgan Province in the western waters of Hormozgan province. Edible oysters are one of the sources of marine protein with high nutritional value. Due to the interest of foreign markets in oysters and the possibility of exporting them, they have a high potential for importing foreign currencies into the country. Since it is possible to farm oysters in the coastal waters of the Persian Gulf in Hormozgan province, gaining knowledge of commercial production of edible oyster by collecting oyster spat, breeding and processing can be used to industrialize mariculture and create jobs in local communities. He continued: Preliminary research to achieve this goal began with a workshop on edible oyster culture in 2017 with the participation of Italian instructors at the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Ecological Research Institute. Then, with the financial support of the Management and Planning Organization of Hormozgan Province, the research activities of the experts of the Bandar Lengeh Mollusks Research Station to identify suitable places for collecting oyster spat (oyster larvae), selecting a suitable place to construct a farm based on oyster biological characteristics, investigating growth rate, survival rate and time required to reach commercial size were performed and related technical knowledge was created. Quality control of farmed oysters was performed with the help of standard tests to determine the microbial load and chemical parameters. Raw and processed products (canned oysters) were packaged and prepared.
