Only a number of ‘chem’ fish perished - PAAFR
May 3, 2017, 5:33 pm

The Public Authority for Agriculture and Fish Resources said on Wednesday that "only a group of the [chem] fish have recently perished" in the territorial sea waters. All fish in the local markets are "safe" and only a group of "chem" fish have recently perished, said PAAFR General Director Faisal Al-Hasawi, in a statement to KUNA.

PAAFR has formed a panel to determine cause of the fish deaths at sea, he said. A team of the authorities has surveyed the bay to examine these cases, he said, indicating that it was the first time that deep-sea fish have perished.

He was alluding to "chem," as the Kuwaiti natives call it. Kuwaitis do not commonly eat the fish, known as catfish abroad. PAAFR, with an experience of examining the fish perish phenomena in 2001 and 2003, has set up an operation room and central laboratories to examine samples of the dead fish.
