Fish Farming Complex Tragedy in Southern Iran

Published by on November 8, 2018

Low water levels and increasing salt concentration in Karoun River, a major river in southern Iran, has resulted in rising fish fatalities at the Khorramshahr Fish Farming Complex.

This complex started its activities as a conglomerate of 55 cooperatives in 1998 and expanded to include 88 cooperatives in 2016. The farm grows a variety of fish such as phytophagous, carp, amur, and bighead, and it has more than 1,000 employees.

Khorramshahr is a city located in the southern province of Khuzestan, which is rich in natural resources.
