Iran is located in the Middle East and borders Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Turkey. Iran is located between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf; consequently, fishing is an important industry there. The Caspian Sea is an excellent supply of sturgeon, salmon and other species of fish.
