This research is made to suggest solutions for existing problems by putting forth the effective structure of the fishery sector in the economical development of Samsun City. Samsun is one of the important cities which can actively take part in sea products and fishery sector of our country with his long shore to Black Sea and three harbors and it is in a privileged position regarding sea products with large sea and internal water potentials. Sea of Samsun city is the migration way of many fish, primarily the anchovy. Therefore, in hunting season, Samsun has the advantage that all kinds of fish living in Black Sea can be caught.  In Samsun, anchovy is the most caught fish type with 7.645.981 kg.  In Samsun, there are 4 sea fish breeder and 10 net cage fish breeder companies. While most of the fish acquired by hunting and breeding are consumed directly, some are used in fish flour and fish oil companies. Yet the water products manufacturing potential in the region is not adequately utilized. The causes of this situation are that the companies are mostly family companies and there is not an adequately developed industry. Providing the fish for the customer in other times by subjecting them to cooling, freezing, salting and conservation Technologies in processing plants will significantly increase the added value to be created in the region with fishery in regards to economical profit. Constituting the fish market, the contribution of which to Samsun and neighbor cities is great in  an area closer to sea, with electronic measurement and record facilities, and in a closed field in which the materials used and the environment will be more hygienic will make a great contribution to the economic growth and development of fishery in the region.
