In line with the expectations of the Environment Public Authority of the occurrence of the red tide phenomenon and the accompanying death of fish, the Kuwaiti diving team announced that it had spotted, Saturday, dead fish in Naqaat Al-Shamlan in the Souk Sharq area.

The team said all waste from the Kuwait Bay was removed in cooperation with the market administration and the fishermen’s union, reports a local Arabic daily.
