KUWAIT CITY, July 22: The head of the Kuwaiti Federation of Fishermen, Dhaher Al-Suwayyan, said the board of directors at the union has opened the door for every young and retired Kuwaiti, who is able to practice the artisanal fishing, reports Al-Jarida daily. He pointed out such fishing trips range between 5 and 7 continuous days in the sea.

There are fishing licenses for grabs and there are a number of Kuwaitis who own fishing licenses but need laborers. Al-Suwayyan added, in today’s statement, that the federation presented this in more than one statement, but no one came forward, hoping that a number of citizens wishing to practice the fishing profession would apply to the federation.

He pointed out that the federation will send a list of names to the concerned authority in order to obtain a fishing identity issued by it, provided that the fishing process is practiced during the entire shrimp fishing season for a period of 5 consecutive months, starting in August. He explained that the fishing profession does not have a monthly salary, but rather shares of the catch after a period of work, and after paying operating expenses and costs, maintenance work and the purchase of fishing equipment in each new season.
