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.
