Majority of fish consumed in Singapore not responsibly caught: WWF

Singaporeans need to make better consumption choices as three out of four common fish species consumed here are not responsibly caught, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) said on Tuesday (Oct 4). Singaporeans are one of the biggest consumers of seafood in the world, with each person consuming about 22kg of seafood a year, compared to the global average of 20kg, the conservation group said. “We are squandering one of our greatest natural resources by failing to manage our fish stocks sensibly,” said WWF-Singapore CEO Elaine Tan. “The seafood guide empowers everyone in the supply chain to make conscious choices that prevent the further exploitation of fish stocks.”

Now that this has been exposed, what are other environmentally conscious choices can Singaporeans make to ensure a better future?
