Iran & Fish Farming (Trout Hatcheries to raise protein intake of populace)

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the IRGC aside, Iran possesses astounding beauty in its people and in particular its mountains and highlands. Trout streams exist and little is available about the habitat and fly fishing possibilities available for the adventure angler. I did discover long standing efforts to rear trout in lakes and streams in Iran in an effort to enhance the meager protein intake in certain remote areas.  I imagine somewhere in Iran fisheries biologist are arguing the same aquaculture versus wild trout. Hatcheries appear to have existed near the Caspian Sea’s inlet streams. I would be curious to find out more about this region’s trout species and other species that have been fished for….and if fly fishing is practiced to any degree. Why the interest in a purported hot button locale? Well, in discussing Iran with a freind there is the other part of the story. No excusing the Mullahs or the whack job Ahmadinejad…but there is another beautiful side to the country and part of that is its natural beauty and streams. One never knows, someday a burgeoning fly fishing trade may set in as it has in SE Europe…in regions once viewed as unsafe, hostile or troubled. The beauty was always there along with kind people. The same holds true for Iran.

Received info from Fati of Iran of a beautiful lake several hours outside of Theran. The linked photos  by Helma certainly show a beautiful area.

    is there a list of the rivers in the north of Iran (Shomal) that carry trouts? what are the good trout rivers, and why couldn’t we start an international trout fishing club to bring us all closer. ok so what about that list of rivers….

      Your guess is as good as mine. I have posted seeking feed back from fly fishers in Iran. If you look at the countries visiting this site the Iran flag is up there, so there is interest. Maybe I will write a Farsi post and see if I get a response re rivers.
