The head of the Kuwaiti Federation of Fishermen, Zaher Al-Suwayan, announced that the today Fahaheel market will have two fish auctions, the first at 8 am and the second after the afternoon prayer, and the Sharq market also has two auctions for imported fish after the dawn prayer and the second for the local one after the afternoon prayer, stressing that the auction will be entered into. According to the health controls and conditions set by the Council of Ministers, non-vaccinated people are prohibited from entering it, whether consumers or otherwise.
Al-Suwayan expressed his hopes that fishing will be abundant to meet the market’s need, noting that “everyone is optimistic about the return of normal life to the market, and God willing, we will soon reach complete community immunity.”
He said that the Kuwaiti fishing fleet will work as much as the available manpower, pointing to the need to work to bridge the severe shortage in fishing labor, and to open permits to bring in new labor so that the fleet can operate at its full potential. Al-Suwayan renewed the union’s demand to exempt Kuwaiti fishing survivors from the traffic condition upon returning to Umm Al-Maradim port, in order to save effort, time, fuel and facilitate the fishermen, especially since the two marinas of Al-Shamlan and Fahaheel have two checkpoints (Doba belonging to the Coast Guard).
