Fish consumption in Iran is less than half the global average. While in terms of access to free waters and domestic water resources, Iran is among the countries is prone to increase fish production. The aim of this study is to measure the technical, managerial and scale efficiency of fisheries in Iran and the possibility of increasing production by increasing efficiency. The above-mentioned efficiency was measured during the years 2001 to 2011 using data envelopment analysis (DEA) and an input-oriented model. Results showed that the average technical, Managerial and scale efficiency are 0.89, 0.97 and 0.91 respectively. According to the results, the highest amount of efficiency was related to Managerial efficiency. Also, the lowest efficiency was related to technical efficiency. Thus the relevant organizations can to increase the proportion of industrial fishing with appropriate capital and the larger up fishing units simultaneously improve technical and scale efficiency. The results also revealed that in most years there are increasing returns to scale.
