What the Fish?! conservation event: learning about sustainable seafood from the experts

According to a 2016 report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), about a third of commercial fish stocks are now overharvested at biologically unsustainable levels.

To help people better understand this pressing issue, on 30 November 2017, Guardians of the S.E.A.A. organised a special event in collaboration with the Marine Stewardship Council, Republic Polytechnic and S.E.A. Aquarium curatorial department.

All set to learn about sustainable fishing.
The Marine Stewardship Council introduced participants to various impacts of fishing, as well as some sustainable/non-sustainable fish species through presentations and games.
Aquarist Priscilla Seah spoke about various sustainable practices within the S.E.A. Aquarium, including ways aquariums can have a positive influence on both wild populations and those under human care.
Time for the treasure hunt by Republic Polytechnic! Participants formed teams of 2-4, and went around the aquarium in search of specific marine animals.
