However, authorities saw right through the trickery.

According to local media, the owners have reportedly been told to cease operations after images and a video showing the "fresh fish" surfaced on social media on Monday, 2 September.

Hilarious photos showed the eye slipping off the fish's face, revealing a yellow eye beneath. 

Needless to say, the Twitterverse reacted with hilarity

This is not the first time something like this has happened in Kuwait. In July, a fishmonger was accused of stuffing his fish with nails to increase their weight and market value.

Kuwait Times reported that a female customer had found nails inside the fish when gutting them.
