Kuwait Trading and fishing

Fifty years ago Kuwait was self sufficient in marine foods and despite a 20-fold increase in population, fishing still provides 50% of the country’s seafood requirements.

But stocks are being depleted through overfishing and the breeding grounds are being polluted by increased sediment due to marsh-draining in southern Iraq(no need for this part Group 3 might talk about it)

Kuwaitis used to travel to the harbors of the Gulf and the Indian Ocean to transport goods and conduct trade, which was known as traveling.(give examples of some goods)
