TEHRAN Nov. 29 (Mehr News Agency)- Iran's first fishing marketplace would be put into operation during the next two months of the current Iranian calendar year of 1382 (started March 21), said the director general of Sistan-Baluchestan Fisheries Organization, Seyyed Ahmad Tabatabaei on Saturday.

"The marketplace is to be constructed in Ramin fishing port of Chabahar, costing over Rls.1,250 million worth of credits," he said.


He pointed to the fast sale of fish with reasonable and fair price, increasing healthy competition, prevention from various pricing on fish as well as wholesome supply as the main objective for establishing the marketplace.


Among other objectives, he mentioned the decrease in saving expenses, direct supervision, pricing fish according to its quality, encouraging fishers, etc.


"Fishers of southern Iranian provinces especially those in Chabahar lead hundred of tons of fish as well as other aquatic animals to onshore annually with their round-the-clock endeavors, but the profit is less than the actual value of their fishing affair."


He pointed to the dealers as the main obstacle in cutting the fishers' real profit, saying that fishers' dependency on the dealers and also lack of a suitable vending and buying monitoring system have brought about such problems.


In the end, the director general of Sistan-Baluchestan Fisheries Organization pointed to auction selling of aquatic animals in the marketplace and said: "Selling is started from the basic fish price and is sold at the highest offered price."
