Fishing season has just started in the Caspian Sea provinces of Mazandaran and Gilan, northern Iran. The fishing season starts routinely in mid-October and lasts for about six months. Roughly four thousand people in the two coastal provinces are engaged in fishing during the period.

Last year, some 2,700 tons of bony fish, worth around 700 billion rials (about $16 million) were caught by fishermen.
