Abstract: 

This paper discusses the environmental effects of aquaculture in Iran. When using water as a means of production, two fragile ecosystems require attention: mangroves and coral reefs. About 70% of the annual precipitation in Iran is not being controlled and the inefficient use of the remaining water can lead to high environmental costs.
In this study, development capacities as well as the physical and chemical quality of water are considered, with an emphasis on rainbow trout culture. The importance of aquaculture in creating food security for population growth, occupation, and GNP increase is explained and the methods of sustainable development in aquaculture, such as the use of biotechnology and integrated agriculture-aquaculture systems are presented. Feeding management is introduced as a factor in decreasing environmental adverse effects and pollution of raceways effluent is investigated. Effluent treatment with sedimentation ponds, aeration with compressors, and utilization of final ponds are also explained as a means of decreasing environmental adverse effects.
