A number of retailers in Qatar have been forced to shut up shop as high temperatures have hit fish catchments.

The Peninsula reports on June 18th that the combined effects of warm seas and cyclonic winds have hit the available supply of fish, including King Fish and Hamur.

As a result, many vendors in shops and markets have been forced to close until their catchment improves, although many are pessimistic as the temperature is already 33 degrees Celsius ahead of the summer season.

Many traders are relying on imported prawns for business, as well as less sought-after alternatives such as sardines and mackerel.
