He added the ministry will continue to regulate the sale of catches on the stalls after the auction was cancelled, in addition to monitoring prices and adhering to health requirements.
Earlier, Al Suwaiyan expressed his surprise that the vegetable markets have been re-opened but the fish market has been ignored “as though the coronavirus is in only the fish market”.
Al Suwaiyan said,
