Store busted for putting googly eyes on old fish to make them look fresher
— Mohamed El Dahshan (@eldahshan) September 1, 2018
It’s unclear if the store was using the plastic eyes only for advertisement purposes, or if people were actually going home with googly-eyed fish.
The story has gone viral in both America and Kuwait, with one company now advertising that they have “Fish without cosmetic surgery”.

They need to scale back a little…

Is this what they mean by bait and switch?

Eye that’s a fishy tail for sure. The net is closing in and the scales of justice will catch up, then they’ll be in deep water over this.. as for this tweet, I can’t fillet with any more puns. 🐠🐟🐬

This story serves as a great reminder to all the people out there shopping for fresh fish. Make sure to shake the head a bit before making your final selection. If you hear a soft rattling noise coming from the eyes, it’s probably best to move on to another store.
