MetadataShow full item record
The aquaculture industry in Singapore started in 1980s. The country has approximately 130 aquaculture farms, mostly located in the western part of the country. Aquaculture production mainly comes from coastal farms and the cultured fishes are milkfish, mullet, Asian sea bass, grouper, snapper, and pompano. With regard to land-based farms, the fish produced are mainly freshwater fish species such as catfish, tilapia, snakehead, gourami, marble goby and various species of carps. In 2013, the aquaculture industry produced approximately 4,200 metric tons (mt) which represented 8% of the entire country s fish consumption. The rest of the fish and other aquatic products consumed by the populace were imported from the neighboring countries and from Norway for salmon.
