Abstract or Summary
  • Whatever the quantity and the rate of water utilization is, economic principles indicate that there will always be other water utilization methods which might increase the efficiency of the use of this resource. Due to the geo-climatic position of Iran, this country finds itself in a water deficit situation as compared to per capita use rates observed in the rest of the world. The scarcity of water has always been a serious, at times disastrous, problem in Iran, and this problem will likely get worse in the future. Thus, the most rational possible water resource utilization will be a permanent preoccupation of the nation, and therefore the government. One still less examined method of rationalizing water utilization in Iran is the multidimensional utilization of water, where fish culture takes place jointly with other previously adopted agricultural enterprises. The main question considered in this article is that of water productivity, ie. how economically do we use water in fish culture activities? The results of statistical analyses of our field research, based on questionnaire completion of a significant sample of fish-farming enterprises, reveal the fact that Iran could still improve water utilization productivity rates in these enterprises. However, wide variation in water productivity is observed. On the base of some better-operated enterprises extension proposals and policy recommendations could be made.
