Estimating fishery employment is difficult due to the extension, complexity of various activities throughout the value chain of fishery products. Throughout this chain, around 140 million jobs are estimated in the world. In addition to many illegal, unreported and unregulated workers, 59.6 million people work directly, with 880 million people living in the world dependent on this section. Iranian fisheries have the highest capacity and employment growth among the agricultural sector, with a total employment of 229,000 people in the primary production. The survey of employment status, its risks and calculation of employment growth, production and per capita over the 16-year period ended in 1395 showed that these indeces in Iran are higher than global indeces. Employment in total is 2.8% and in aquaculture, a growth of 8.1%, respectively. In 1395, Iran and the world's production per capita were 4.9 and 2.8 respectively, and for each 900 million rials a direct job was created. At the present, attention to fisheries opportunities, sustainability and job safety is one of the most important issues in Iran.
