The Kurdistan Region's Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources has given permission for six fish projects and initially accepted creating 20 new fish projects within six months in the region.
Media supervisor Sabir Ibrahim at the General Directorate of Animal Resources and Veterinary said: "The increase of these projects will raise the size of fish production."
Ibrahim added that the directorate has given out 2,531 million fish fingerlings in the Dukan project in Suli.
So far 68 fish projects have benefited from the distribution of fish fingerlings. The distribution continues, added Ibrahim.
