Iran to export 100 tons of trout to Russia

TEHRAN, Jan. 24 (MNA) – Iranian Deputy Minister of Agriculture announced Iran will export 100 tons of trout to Russia in the near future.

Iranian Deputy Minister of Agriculture Hassan Salehi, while stating that the production of trout is expected to witness a 10 to 15 percent decline, pointed to the necessary measures taken for trout exports.

Salehi said Iran would soon export 100 tons of trout to Russia by the end of current Iranian year.

Mr. Salehi ensured the decline in trout production and export would not lead to an increase in price in the domestic market, saying that other products as well as the increase in Tilapia fillet imports would cover the decline.

He stressed that the increase in fishery products, particularly aquaculture, would face less inflation rate this year.
