The guide uses an internationally agreed method to assess seafood sustainability to help you make the best seafood choices. It groups some of the most popular seafood species in Singapore into 3 categories:
From well-managed, sustainable stocks which are not considered to be over-exploited. These species are the preferred eating choice.
  Think Twice
From fisheries that are at risk of becoming unsustainable, due to mangement, environmental or stock issues. Only eat these species occassionally, if recommended options are not available.
Considered to be over-exploited, or from unsustainable, overfished and poorly managed fisheries. Avoid eating these species at present.
