Support for shrimp industry

15 May 2007

IRAN - Experts are scrutinizing a comprehensive plan to support shrimp farmers and exporters as they are pushing for its implementation.

Although the plan, according to the managing director of Iran's Cooperatives for Breeding and Exporting Aquatics, has been revised four times, it is yet to be endorsed by the Management and Planning Organization.

A number of shrimp breeders gathered in front of the Majlis and Agriculture Jihad Ministry last week calling for implementation of the plan.

Arsalan Qassemi said that a taskforce comprising representatives from Iran's Fisheries Organization, Shrimp Breeding Union and MPO experts is currently studying the plan for possible revisions, Mehr news agency reported.

He said that the comprehensive initiative, aimed at supporting shrimp producers and exporters, will be sent to the MPO for final ratification in less than a month.
