TEHRAN - Infrastructure is provided for foreign investment in Iran's fishery sector, IRNA quoted the Iranian Fishery Organization Director Gholamreza Razeqi as saying.

Some 66 trillion rials (about $5.4 billion) has been allocated to the development of the fishery sector, he added.

In October 2012, Razeqi said that the value of exports of Iran's fishery sector will surpass $350 million in the current calendar year.

"The exports stood at $210 million last year," Razeqi said, IRNA reported.
Over 200,000 individuals are currently working in the fishery sector, he noted.

According to FAO, Iran ranks the 33th in terms of fishery output.
