KUWAIT: The month of August signifies the return of Kuwaiti shrimp to the market after six months of its absence, based on a decision by the Public Authority of Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR). PAAAFR organizes fishing operations with the goal of maintaining Kuwait’s stock of shrimp. Kuwait’s water is home to 11 types of shrimp.
The four types that are commonly traded are Um Naeerah, which is big in size; Shahamiyah is in high demand for consumption; Um Shuwaikah is small in size; and Malsah resembles Shahamiyah, but is smaller in size. —KUNA
