8 to 15 June 2014

WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) Singapore’s inaugural Sustainable Seafood Festival is making waves with enthusiastic participation from businesses across the island, spanning over 30 establishments running exclusive “Pick The Right Catch” promotions during this week-long campaign. 

The Festival, launched in tandem with World Oceans Day (8 June), and organised in partnership with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), 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.

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. 

In conjunction with the Festival, there will be marine conservation-themed roadshows and exhibitions during the month of June and beyond across Singapore to educate the public on the pressing need for responsible seafood consumption and long term food security.
