Supermarket Put Googly Eyes On Their Fish To Make It Look Fresher.

Googly-Eyed Fish
A fish store in Kuwait was shut down by authorities after it was discovered that the owners were sticking plastic, craft-store “googly eyes” onto their fish in an apparent effort to make their product look fresher. The freshness of a fish can indeed be judged by its eyes. The whiter the fish’s eyes, the more recently it was caught. In this case, the googly eyes did cover up the rotting, yellowish colour of the fish’s actual eyes. However, the ruse didn’t exactly go unnoticed. A video of the googly-eyed fish first started circulating among local WhatsApp users before still images wound up on Twitter, where users had a field day making fun of the ridiculous tactic employed to seemingly sell more fish to the public. The local newspaper originally reported the shutdown of the fish vendor and also posted images of the fake fresh fish to Twitter. The hilarious and weird news of the stunt then had Twitter users running wild, posting images of the failed attempt to trick fish market shoppers into buying the “fresh” fish.

Apparently, this store didn’t want their own fish supply to go to waste and instead opted to try and trick its customers into buying their product, even though the fish they were selling were obviously long past their expiration date. Because fish consumption has been increasing, there is a seemingly higher demand for fisheries to catch more product to sell. But when the supply significantly outweighs demand, a lot of the supply can wind up going to waste. And as we’ve now seen in Kuwait, fish vendors can come up with some pretty creative ways to try to stop their product from going to waste even if it might have already gone bad.
