The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has confirmed that the fish in local market is safe for consumption as it is subject to examination by municipality, food authority and the health ministry.

Meanwhile, EPA said Monday that harmful bacteria caused the fish deaths recently in Kuwait's bay. EPA's deputy director for technical affairs Mohammad Al-Enezi said at a news conference that the fish "are subject to environmental stress for several reasons, including the effect of sewage on specific shorelines" in Kuwait.

He added that the dead fish were of the species, "chem," noting that they were exposed to wastewater, industrial drainage or illegal encroachment. Chem fish, as locally called are a species of catfish -- not favored for eating by bulk of the Kuwaitis.
