Hong Kong is the second-largest per capita consumer of seafood in Asia. Our insatiable demand for seafood places a heavy burden on our marine resources, and on the resources of other countries both close by and far away. For years, WWF-Hong Kong has been working to improve Hong Kong’s seafood consumption practices by encouraging people to choose sustainable seafood instead of seafood harvested from overexploited fisheries or caught using unsustainable fishing methods.
In 2007, WWF-Hong Kong launched our popular Seafood Guide, aiming to help individuals and businesses make better sustainable seafood choices and avoid unsustainable seafood products. Over 70 marine species commonly found in Hong Kong are included in the Seafood Guide, which is carefully divided into three categories: “Green – Recommended”, “Yellow – Think Twice” and “Red – Avoid”. Our newly-launched Mobile Seafood Guide app allows users to readily access this information on the go. WWF has also been working with hotels and restaurants across Hong Kong to develop and roll out “Ocean-Friendly Menus” which offer environmentally-friendly and diversified dining option to the public.
To celebrate our promotion of sustainable seafood across Hong Kong, WWF will be holding our annual Sustainable Seafood Week from 27 June to 5 July this year. We will be partnering with over 100 restaurants located in almost every district of Hong Kong. This year, Western restaurants, fast food chains, Chinese restaurants, hotels and clubhouses will all be participating, highlighting that sustainable seafood can be served in many different types of restaurants, and showing that people from all districts and walks of life can enjoy delicious and sustainable seafood! Chefs at the participating restaurants will prepare tasty and creative dishes using sustainable seafood and other ingredients, offering everyone who participates a broad, exciting and innovative dining experience. Our goals are to increase public awareness of marine conservation and sustainable development, and we are inviting everyone across Hong Kong to have a tasty time taking part in this festival of sustainable seafood!
Sample delicious sustainable seafood and safeguard our marine environment!
