Singapore is one of the biggest seafood consumers in Asia-Pacific, devouring over 140 million kilogrammes a year. With more than 87% of the world’s oceans overfished, it is estimated that the world’s fish stocks will run out by 2048 if we do not act now.
The WWF Sustainable Seafood Festival, launched in tandem with World Oceans Day (8 June), hopes to create a new movement for responsible consumption of seafood by empowering suppliers, retailers, restaurants and consumers to ‘pick the right catch’.
This means selecting seafood products that have been vetted through stringent standards by Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) or from the green list of the WWF Singapore Seafood Guide.
During the Festival, people can enjoy exclusive sustainable seafood promotions available during this week at participating restaurants and retailers. Visit picktherightcatch.com to find out where you can enjoy responsibly harvested seafood.
