250 KD fine for collecting seashells and snails from beaches

The Environmental Public Authority warned public against collecting seashells and snails from various Kuwait coastal areas as a violation which harms the ecological system of marine life. Any violation against this act will be fined up to KD 250.

Director of Public Relations and Environmental Media, Sheikha Al-Ibrahim, stated that “Collecting seashells and snails from the beaches of Kuwait is an environmental violation of Article 100 of the Environmental Protection Law which stipulates that it is prohibited to kill, hunt, catch, collect, harm or possess or transfer of wild and marine organisms, whether live or dead, or affecting the young, eggs, nests or habitats of these organisms. The penalty for collecting shellfish or snails is up to 250 dinars,” Al-Ibrahim appealed to all Kuwaiti citizens and expats to abide by environmental law and protect marine and wild environments from destruction.”

According to reports, East Asian gangs collect these from various Kuwait coastal areas such as Anjafa, Al Bidda, Fintas and Al Jon near the Asherij area and sell them to restaurants.
