Bangladeshi zubaidi (Pomfret fish) sold as Pakistani zubaidi in Kuwait fish market
October 15, 2018, 8:57 am

It appears the Bangladeshi zubaidi fish is replacing Pakistan-imported fish in the Kuwaiti markets. The case of commercial fraud was bought to the public's attention by an informed source at the fish market in Sharq who confirmed the existence of cases of fraud, pointing out the Bangladeshi zubaidi was presented in sealed bags and sold as product of Pakistan, reports Al-Rai daily.

The source added zubaidi is sold for KD 6.5 under the label of Pakistani product. The source added some claim also the Chinese zubaidi is sold in the market but this is untrue.

However, the aim is to send a message to the Ministry of Commerce to know the truth about the imported fish and fight the local fish, especially that the imported fish is not subjected to examination or inspection. In a related context, an official at the Ministry of Commerce denied that the ministry has allowed the sale of Bangladeshi fish as some claim.
