Iranian White Shrimp Catching Area

Khuzestan Province

The majority of white shrimp caught in Iranian waters are wild, with a small portion being produced through aquaculture. Farming of white prawns has been conducted as an experimental project in the southern and northern regions of Iran. However, for commercial purposes and in large quantities, sea shrimps are primarily supplied from Bushehr and Khuzestan provinces.

As a dedicated frozen white shrimp exporter, MEDES COMPANY manages the entire supply chain, encompassing fishing, processing, and transportation for preparing unique services.

We are honored to be recognized as your trusted Iranian shrimp supplier, guaranteeing you a consistent source of these prized products.

Chinese white shrimp

The Chinese white shrimp, also known as banana shrimp (Fenneropenaeus Merguiensis), is a native shrimp species found in Iranian waters. It can reach a maximum length of 24 cm and a maximum weight of 50 grams. In terms of economic importance, it has a lower density and occupies a relatively lower position compared to the Indian white shrimp. In Iran, this species has been tested experimentally for aquaculture breeding purposes.

The Indian white shrimp, also known as Tugela shrimp (Fenneropenaeus Indicus), is a species found in Iranian waters. It can reach a maximum length of 22.7 cm and weigh around 35 grams, with an average length of approximately 17 cm. Economically, the Indian white shrimp holds the top position for fishermen, as it is the most abundant species harvested from the seas. Additionally, this species is commercially cultivated in aquaculture farms.

White Shrimp Catching Steps

trawling boat or trawling ship

Another fishing method is called trawling, where large ships are used to catch a vast quantity of aquatic species from the deep sea in each haul.

However, this method is not considered environmentally friendly in Iran, and several restrictions have been implemented for operation.

Gillnetting technique for catching shrimp and fish

This fishing technique (gillnet) is known as an industrial method for catching white shrimp worldwide.

It is also recognized as one of the most popular and environmentally friendly method in Iran.



Moshta (Fishing weir) is the Iranian traditional catching technique that relies on the natural movement of tides to capture a diverse range of species including crustaceans such as lobsters, crabs, and shrimps that inhabit the nearshore and muddy waters.

Catching & Processing of White Prawn in Iran

shrimp transport

White shrimp primary transport

To move Iranian white shrimp from the ports to the processing plant, we use a special cold car with water and ice. This keeps the products fresh during the journey. Putting them in cold seawater right away helps keep the white prawn fresh and of good quality.

After loading the fresh white shrimp onto the cold car, we take them to the processing factory.

It’s important to make sure the time between catching and processing is as short as possible. We aim to get the shrimp to the sorting machine within 3 hours at most.

Sorting and packing of white shrimp

When white shrimp are caught in Iran, they go through careful sorting to make sure they are good enough for the international market. Skilled workers look at each shrimp and remove any that are damaged. This sorting ensures that customers get frozen white shrimp that are the same size and look good, which meets their preferences and standards. It’s important to note that in many cases, Chinese white shrimp and Indian white shrimp are sorted together.

White prawn storing

In Iran, when storing fresh white shrimp, they are moved to well-maintained facilities with advanced refrigeration systems. Experienced experts handle frozen products carefully, placing them in specific containers or trays to allow for good airflow. Keeping the temperature just right is very important, so the storage places maintain an ideal temperature of -18°C.

We make sure that the frozen white shrimp stay fresh and tasty, providing a top-notch seafood experience for customers all around the world.
