Ribbonfish belongs to the marine fish family. Ribbonfish has a long body and compressed sides that give them a ribbon-like appearance. Ribbonfish swim in the open sea. Ribbonfish do not have anal fins, but their dorsal fins are the same size as their bodies, and the fins on their stomach have 1 large and 9 small fin rays. Ribbonfish are rarely seen alive. Ribbonfish are usually dead and floating on surfaces of the ocean. Ribbonfish is among economically valuable fish. Ribbonfish is widely found in the Persian Gulf waters and Sea of Oman. Ribbonfish is one of the most important fish stocks in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, which needs to be studied more in biological and environmental fields. The habitat and fishing ground of ribbonfish is in Bushehr province and the Mataf region in Dayer city. The fishing season of ribbonfish starts in May and continues until September.

largehead ribbonfish

Largehead ribbonfish lives in the sea and saltwater. Largehead ribbonfish is benthopelagic, meaning they live in both beds and the surface of the sea. Largehead ribbonfish migrates to different places. This fish lives at a depth of 589 meters and usually at 100 to 350 meters. Largehead ribbonfish lives in subtropical waters. Largehead ribbonfish is found in tropical and temperate waters of the world. It is commonly found above muddy beds in shallow coastal waters and often enters estuaries.

Iran Ribbonfish

Eating fish without scales is not that common in Iran and because ribbonfish doesn’t have scales, it is widely exported to China, Japan, and other Southeast Asian countries for industrial and edible purposes. Largehead ribbonfish is one of the most important fish stocks in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman. The most important reasons for catching ribbonfish in Iran to export include:

  • Considerable stocks of ribbonfish in Iran Persian Gulf waters
  • High export value
  • Bringing money into the country in a significant way
  • Targeted trawling with a strong focus on catching ribbonfish
  • Exclusive fishing of ribbonfish
  • Creating jobs in the region

Squid (Cuttlefish)

Squid belong to the cephalopods. The squid has 10 legs or arms. Squid uses these arms to swim, crawl, stick to the stones and catch prey. Squid is sometimes called the "sea chameleon" because it changes color in different situations. Squid changes color to hide from predators and also as a means of communicating with other fish.

Iran Squid

Cuttlefish or squid is one of the invertebrates in the Persian Gulf, Iran. Hundreds tons of cuttlefish are caught by Iranian fishermen. This valuable fish is then processed in whole or as fillet in processing companies in Iran and then exported to near or far countries. In Bushehr province of Iran, the fishing season of squid starts in February every year and continues until May of the next year. As a non-oil product, processing and exporting squid helps with creating jobs in Iran as well as bringing money into the country.

Catfish

Catfish are scientifically known as Siluriformes. They are a various group of fish that have fins supported by thin bony rays. More than 3000 species of catfish are scattered in all continents except for Antarctica. Catfish lives in freshwater ecosystems such as rivers and streams but some species of catfish can also live in saltwater and caves. Aquaculture farmers choose this type of fish to farm the most because people eat catfish as a specialty food around the world. Overfishing and water pollution are two of the reasons that some types of catfish such as Mekong catfish are highly in danger of extinction.

Catfish have specific features such as smooth, slightly flat, and long whiskers sticking out from around their mouth. Catfish have no scale; instead, their bodies are covered in slippery mucus to protect them from bacteria when out of the water and to breathe through the skin in some species. In some species of the Siluriformes order, a tough layer of bony plates or scutes covers the body of catfish to protect them from predators. Catfish are mostly identified by their wide flat heads and long whiskers called barbels that hang out from their mouth.

Iran Catfish

Spotted catfish reportedly lives in Iranian waters and other countries. Spotted catfish lives in deep-sea floors of fresh water and salt water. Catfish is a deep-sea fish and lives at depth of 50 to 100 meters in freshwater. Catfish lives in tropical areas. Adult spotted catfish are found in waters near the coast and estuaries. There are 3.6 times more catfish in the Persian Gulf than the sea of Oman.

Sea Cucumber

Sea cucumber belongs to the echinodermsand tube-feet family. An adult sea cucumber has 10 finger-like tentacles that are easily recognized from the front and back. Sea cucumber is related to starfish and belongs to the echinoderm family. All the species in this class have a 5-partsymmetrical body which can be easily observed in starfish. If the sea cucumber loses one of its tentacles, it can replace and rebuild it in 3 weeks. The lifespan of the sea cucumber is about 8 years. When we catch sea cucumber and hold it in our hand, it expels its intestines which shortens its lifespan and even causing the sea cucumber to die sometimes. In some cases, sea cucumber can even rebuild the lost organs

Iran Sea Cucumber

Sea Cucumber is a marine animal in the Persian Gulf. There have not been many studies about the sea cucumber. Two foreign researchers, reported sea cucumbers in the Persian Gulf for the first time. According to the Danish delegation, 17 species of sea cucumber have been identified in the Persian Gulf so far. Sea cucumbers are greatly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries in Southeast Asia, China, and the Arab world. Every year in China, millions of sea cucumbers are released in the sea that can be farmed after two years which has a great annual economic benefit for Chinese fishermen. The sea cucumbers produced in Iran is exported to Southeast Asian countries and China. Powdered sea cucumber has a lot of uses in the pharmaceuticals and food industry.

Vannamei Shrimp

Vannamei shrimps are graded based on the land they are farmed. The lighter the color of the Vannamei shrimp, the higher the quality or the grade is. A1 grade is the best quality of vanami shrimps and A5 is the lowest grade or quality. Wholesale vannamei shrimps with A1 grade are often sold to the European Union countries and Russia. The only type of shrimps that are known as farmed shrimps and produced in large volumes all over the world are the vannamei shrimps.

Iran Shrimp

Shrimp production in Iran is over 100,000 tons per year and 90% of shrimps are exported. By using the mechanization system such as compaction methods, assigning smaller farms (about one to two hectares), and harvesting shrimp twice a year, we will see Iran’s production of shrimp doubled in the future. Shrimp harvest starts from the beginning of September and continues until November. In Iran, 4 provinces in the south, including Bushehr, Sistan and Baluchestan, Hormozgan and Khuzestan, and Golestan province in the north, produce farmed shrimps. Aquaculture farmers use this type of shrimp, because Vannamei shrimp has a high resistance to diseases and gain weight in a short time. As the most important shrimp production hub in Iran, Bushehr has entered the third decade of shrimp farming and with the cultivation of 50,000 tons of shrimp per year, it is the leading producer of shrimp farming in the country.
