KUWAIT CITY, May 7, (Agencies): Kuwait’s Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) announced on Sunday that the perished fish phenomenon in the Gulf waters has diminished.

A press release by PAAAFR said that sea surveillance conducted over the last three days showed that no perished fish was found, noting that the fact that decomposed fish was found floating over the water surface indicated that this phenomenon was on the wane.

The Authority hailed the citizens for their eagerness to keep marine environment safe, pointing out that the social media networks have contributed to controlling the phenomenon. PAAAFR had formed a panel to determine the exact cause of recent fish perishing in the Arabian Gulf water.

On the other hand, Al-Roudhan issued decision to lift the ban on the import of all types of poultry meat (fresh, chilled, frozen and processed), their derivatives and products as well as eggs from Lebanon, Thailand, Denmark, Algeria and Taiwan after they were cleared of bird fl u. The ban on the import of beef and its products (fresh, chilled, frozen and processed) from the Republic of Hungary has also been lifted, provided a certifi cate from the country of origin is attached to state that the meat is free of “mad cow disease” along with other required certifi cates.

Meanwhile, Al-Qabas daily reported that Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on behalf of the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA), has notified Kuwait Municipality that Saudi Arabia has issued a temporary ban on the import of poultry meat, table eggs and their products from the State of Kuwait due to the spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).

However, poultry meat, table eggs and their products that have been heat treated or treated any other way that is able to eliminate the bird flu virus have been excluded from the Saudi ban, provided a health certificate is attached with the shipment of these products to Saudi Arabia.

This certificate must be issued by the competent official Kuwaiti authorities and must specify the type of treatment used. According to the letter sent to Kuwait Municipality, the ban will continue until the health status of the region’s livestock stabilizes.
