Fish available in large quantities, says union’s chief

KUWAIT: A large number of fish and shrimp baskets seen at Souq Sharq’s fish market.

KUWAIT: The head
of Kuwait Fishermen Union Thaher Al-Suwayyan told Kuwait Times that fish are
available in the market in large quantities, especially shrimp and Kuwaiti
mullet, which is helping lower prices.

Kuwaiti shrimp
include Um Naira, a large-sized shrimp, and Shahamia, a desirable variety
because of its medium size. “The number of shrimp baskets at Souq Sharq

[fish market]

reached 1,100, including 818 baskets of Um Naira and 282 baskets
of Shahamia,” he pointed out.

Suwayyan noted
that the market has a huge number of mullet and shrimp baskets, adding there is
demand by consumers, and prices will likely fall. “On Eid, prices ranged
between KD 50 to 55 for an Um Naira shrimp basket, KD 25 to 30 for Shahamia
shrimp and KD 18 to 32 for a 25-kg basket of mullet,” he noted.
