With an average of 100,000 tons of seafood consumed each year, Singapore is one of the biggest seafood consumers in Asia-Pacific. It is also an important seafood hub and almost all of it is imported from the Coral Triangle, the world’s most diverse marine environment.

In the past, most people have been unaware of where the fish on their plates come from or whether the species they are eating are heavily overfished or caught in ways that are damaging to the marine environment. Much of the seafood in Singapore may be from areas that have been over fished for years.

Easy to carry around when buying seafood or dinning out, this pocket-size guide will help you choose seafood from sustainable sources. The guide uses a simple traffic light system: Green – Recommended eating choice, Yellow – Only eat occasionally, and Red – Avoid eating.

Buy Only Sustainable Food

Many of us love seafood. The trouble is, our oceans and seas are being seriously over fished. So much so, that unless action is taken some of our favourite fish may disappear forever.

Consumer demand for sustainable seafood can act as an extremely powerful incentive for better fisheries management. So, if you buy, or ask for, seafood that comes from sustainable sources you are helping to protect our marine environment and, at the same time, ensuring that seafood can be enjoyed for many years to come.

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an independent, non-profit organization set up to find a solution to the problem of overfishing. It has set an environmental standard to identify sustainable fisheries and you can spot seafood that meets this standard by looking for the distinctive blue MSC label. This gives you a simple way to identify - and purchase - fish from well-managed sources.

Only Buy What You can Eat

We waste a lot of food. It rots in the fridge or is thrown away at the end of a meal.

In the US, 14% of food purchased at the grocery store is thrown away. This is an incredible waste of resources – not just to produce the food but also to ship, process and store it, all for nothing.
