Fishing in Afghanistan

The nation has plenty of water reserves and suitable climate for fish farming.

Fishing takes place in the lakes and rivers, such as in Sarobi and Mahipar area.

Fish constitute a smaller part of the Afghan diet today because fish farmers are unable to produce enough fish to keep up with the demands of customers.

Using explosives for fishing, called dynamite fishing, became popular in the 1980s and is still practiced by some even though it is illegal today. The annual catch was about 900 tons in 2003.

Most fish and seafood is imported from neighbouring Pakistan, Iran, the United Arab Emirates and other countries.

In recent years, USAID has helped many Afghans in establishing fish farms across the country. There are about 300 fish farms throughout the country and the largest one is at the Qargha, which supplies fish eggs to the other ones
