Posted on : Friday 27th of July 2018

KUWAIT CITY : Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR), the General Department of Coast Guard, and Kuwait Fishermen Union announced that the season of shrimp fishing in the international waters will begin August 1 until Jan 31, 2019.

They added the ban on shrimp fishing will officially start on February 1, 2019 and continue throughout July 31, 2019. At a joint press conference, the sectors called on fishermen to abide by the executive decree issued by PAAAFR in that concern, stressing that violators will face the rigors of law and penalties, including fines.

Deputy Director of Fish Resources at PAAAFR Marzouq Al-Harbi is optimistic that fishermen and the general public will abide by fishing regulations in the international waters.

In this context, acting Director of Marine Formations Sector at the General Department of Coast Guard Colonel Tariq Al-Wazeeq also said Coast Guard officers will closely monitor the location to enforce fishing regulations.


Head of Kuwait Fishermen Society Zaher Al-Souyan also said the society has received a letter from PAAAFR along with the approval of fishing vessels to resume shrimp fishing in the international waters.

He stressed that individuals fulfilling relevant conditions can get around the Kuwaiti territorial waters after having their passports stamped by concerned authorities at Umm Al-Maradem Port and Doha Port. Meanwhile, a report issued by the General Statistics Department revealed that about 2,232,805 kilograms of fish were consumed in Kuwait during the first quarter of 2018, reports Al-Qabas daily.

As per the report, the value of the fish consumed during this period was KD 5,791,322. The production of local fish and imported fish amounted to 461,535 kilograms worth KD 1.181 million, and 1,860,270 kilograms worth KD 4.609 million respectively.
