Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) will begin a campaign to release 120,000 fish in Kuwait's waters next Monday to enrich fish resources in the country, according to KISR's Director General Naji Al-Mutairi. The institute is pleased with the patronage of His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah for the campaign, aiming to develop food security in the country, said Al-Mutairi in a press statement on Wednesday.

The campaign will include two types of fish; the finned black seabream (shaoum) and the black seabream (subaiti), said the official, adding that KISR succeeded in raising these fish in farms, with a production rate of over 120,000 per season. Meanwhile, head of operations department Faisal Al-Helayel said the campaign will last up to one month, and will include daily fish release along the Kuwaiti coasts.
