Population growth, urbanization and rapidly development may be expected to change the pattern of supply and demand of fishery products in Iran. The supply of capture fisheries (for consumption) may probably not increase much further, and increased demand of fishery products would have to be met through aquaculture. Aquaculture development may also play an important role in rural development, employment and export. However, the physical potential for aquaculture development may be clear in Iran, the profitability for producers and the market demand needs to be analyzed. However, research on the aquaculture economics plays an important role in its development, there is a dearth of research on economics of aquaculture in Iran. Economic research on aquaculture can be classified into four: 1) production, 2) market Studies, 3) project evaluation and 4) development policies. In Iran, the major constraints for an economic research in aquaculture arc: insufficient economic data, lack of cooperation among experts, and diversity or aquaculture Systems. The main aspects of aquaculture economies in Iran, particularly the result from economics of carp culture development will be addressed in this paper.
