Abstract or Summary
  • Management of fisheries and aquaculture is an issue that has received widespread attention in the literature. The particular concern is the relationship among fishermen, fish farmers, management institution and fish resources. This relationship is very important for sustainable development of sea resources in Iran. Overfishing, uncertainty in fish availability and changing Iranian government fisheries management are important challenges for fisheries and coastal management in the south of Iran. In addition, aquaculture in Iran is linked to the fish resources via spawner catch from the coastal area. Iranian governmental fisheries management policy has changed during recent years. Government role in fisheries management changed from direct involvement to the monitoring and indirect management. In addition, there are some kinds of cooperative that available in the region. However, these cooperatives are not effectively involved in fisheries and aquaculture management. Cluster industry is a new approach that has been introduced recently and applied in some region (e.g. Port Lincoln Aquaculture Cluster in Australia). Industry clusters are groups of competing, collaborating and interdependent businesses working in a common industry and concentrated in a geographic region. This research examines a cluster establishment for Iranian fisheries and aquaculture in the south. The stratified random sampling and questionnaire were used for collecting data and shrimp farmers, fishermen, governmental managers, and distributor's opinions. The result indicated that the cluster form of relationship among coexisting firms (fishermen, farmers and related industries) provides a source of sustainable management of aquaculture, fisheries resource and creates competitive advantage.
