Although fish cage culture in the sea have been highly considered, especially by countries which are active in the aquaculture sector in recent decades due to employment creation and its positive economic effects; because of likely impacts and threats on marine ecosystem, consequently, physico-chemical and biological parameters would change as a result of wastes, fisheries organization of Mazandaran has address site selection for cages based on environmental condition and parameters, environmental impacts and feasibility of fish cultivation. This study aimed at studying environmental impacts of Trout and other species in cages in coast of Mazanadaran Sea in depth of 30 to 50 meters.

Actual services:

  • Identifying sensitive zones and vulnerable habitats
  • Identifying proper place for cages based on environmental criteria in estuaries, slopes, waves and sediment quality
  • Relocating of cages based on environmental criteria to eliminate environmental risks
  • Investigation on possibility of various species culture based on environmental criteria
  • Specification of appropriate species for cultivation in cages
