About Ahvaz

Ahvaz is built on the banks of the Karun River and is situated in the middle of Khūzestān Province. It has several high ranked universities such as Jondishapour, Shahid Chamran, Ramin Agriculture and Natural resources university, Oil university and Islamic Azad University of Ahvaz.


About us
The center was established in 1988 as a fundamental step for development of aquaculture in Khuzestan province which is considered as a unique area for its high fishery and aquaculture potential. The province contains more than 30% of the total inland freshwater of the country in the forms of rivers, wetlands and dam reservoirs. Meanwhile it has about 200km coastal areas in the North of Persian Gulf. Regarding its ecosystem diversity there is big fish species diversity in the province water bodies. With the consideration of these potentials the province assigned as the main pole for development of aquaculture in Iran. Plenty of non agricultural soil, long period of warm season and freshwater resources are the main characteristics of the province which provide an excellent condition for aquaculture development, mariculture and shrimp culture. Meanwhile the north mountainous part of the province with cold climate and plenty of cold water streams provide wide background for cold water fish culture in the area. All above mentioned potentials in the province led to establishment of Khuzestan Fisheries Research Center.
