Remarks on Fish Production in Kuwait During the Last Two Decades, and its Geographical Significance

Auther : Prof. Hassan S. Abou El-Enin - Dr. Obaid S. Al-Otaibi

     This paper deals mainly with the distinctive trends in the production of fish in Kuwait. Special attention is paid to studying the development of the annual, seasonal and monthly productions of different types of sea fish in the territorial water of Kuwait, (from 1990 to 2008) and the geographical factors affecting their development. Processes of producing farmed fish in order to raise the annual quantity of fish to be sold in Kuwait's markets are also studied. It is noted that, since 1990, Kuwait has been importing almost 60% to 70% of its total annual fish consumption. Fish consumption is expected to increase as the annual growth of population increases. (particularly within the non-Kuwaitis).
Although the territorial water of Kuwait, noted by several authors to be fertile, the mean annual production of the local sea-fish is very modest, and its quantity is insufficient to sustain the annual demand in Kuwait. To provide the fish markets with sufficient quantities of fish, the authors came to the conclusion that the use of aquaculture technology in fishing industry, low cost production of premium quality of fresh fish, and especial attention to the processes of fish farming are urgently needed to be carried out in Kuwait.
