KUWAIT: The price of a shrimp basket varied between KD 65 to KD 80 during the second day of shrimping season, after prices reached KD 90 on the first day.
There were nearly 450 baskets for sale on the second day compared to 45 on the first day, while it is expected that quantities will increase and prices will drop in the coming days.
The price of one kilo of shrimp is between KD 4 to KD 6 depending on its size, especially that shrimping is still taking place outside Kuwait territorial waters. Shrimping in local waters will begin in the middle of the month, which means prices will drop further.
