Report: Seafood market shut down after plastic googly eyes found on fish

(WHDH) — A Kuwait seafood market has reportedly been shut down after workers were found to be attaching fake googly eyes to fish to make them appear fresher.

Photos of a fish with a detached plastic eye first surfaced last week on social media, the BBC reports.

The eye slipped off the fish when a customer brought it home from the market, according to the newspaper Al Bayan.

Rival fish markets took to Twitter after catching wind of the news, announcing they only sell fish “without cosmetic surgery.”
