Besides zubaidi and hamout, fish of almost every conceivable shape and variety in the waters off Kuwait are there for the taking. The range of fish includes six different types of shark, two types of barracuda, stinging and non-stinging ray fish, four varieties of mackerel and tuna, and an array of soles, breams, snappers, rock and cat fish, flounders, cobias, puffers and needlefish. You can go fishing with sophisticated long casting rods, from prominent rocks and the ends of piers using simple poles, lines and hooks or wire baskets to catch fry from the water off the beaches using nets held by several persons, from boats using trawls and multi -hooked lines. Many of the experts use home-made equipment. Both simple and sophisticated fishing tackle is available in the shops.

Geschiedenis van Kuweit

Archaeological finds on Failaka, the largest of Kuwait's nine islands, suggests it was a trading post at the time of the ancient Sumerians. Failaka appears to have continued to serve as a market for approximately 2,000 years, and was known to the ancient Greeks. Despite its long history as a market and sanctuary for traders, Failaka appears to have been abandoned as a permanent settlement in the 1st century A.D. Kuwait's modern history began in the 18th century with the founding of the city of Kuwait by the Uteiba, a subsection of the Anaiza tribe, who are believed to have traveled north from Qatar.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Kuwait: The Growth of a Historic Identity  -  B.J. Slot (Editor)
The Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990 - 1 placed the questions of Kuwait's origins and statehood under the spotlight as never before, making them a matter of pressing concern both for the Kuwaitis themselves and for the world at large. During the 1990s a great deal of scholarly effort has been focused on the particular circumstances of Kuwait's emergence as a state, and as a result much new material has been brought to light. This series of papers, presented at Peterhouse College, Cambridge, on 19 May 1995 by five leading scholars in the field, explores the historical, political and social processes which governed the birth, survival, prosperity and ultimate sovereignty of this unique Arab maritime polity.
