(MENAFN - Arab Times) The Kuwaiti citizens and expatriates have expressed their annoyance over the phenomenon of cheating prevalent in the fish markets where the selling prices of fish are increased way above the normal prices while some fishmongers sell rotten fish along with the good ones. They lamented that the lack of surveillance and control by the concerned authorities is the main reason behind the prevalence of such a phenomenon.

One of the consumers Bu Hussain said fishmongers have cheated him many times by selling rotten fish instead of fresh ones, adding that in such cases, he goes back to the sellers to get his money back. Another consumer Umm Hamad lamented that the prices of fish have increased recently due to which she hesitates to buy fish. She indicated that since her husband likes eating fish, she buys only one kilogram of fish due to the high prices.


On the other hand, a fishmonger Abdullah Mustafa insisted that he sells only fresh fish. However, he affirmed that only few sellers are honest, adding that some customers call for him to personally deliver their orders to their houses. Meanwhile, another fishmonger Essa Subhi indicated that manipulation of the selling prices in the fish market is not a new phenomenon. He revealed that many restaurants in Kuwait buy rotten fish at low prices, which are stored in rented apartments near the restaurants. He added that these restaurants trick their customers by using a certain concoction that contains lemon and garlic to remove the rotten smell of the fish.
