If the majority of Hong Kong people chose sustainable seafood, the effect would be significant. Per-capita speaking, Hong Kong ranks second in terms of seafood consumption in Asia, and is the world’s seventh-largest seafood consumer. Each of us consumes 71.8 kg of seafood on average per year, which is more than three times the global average. Our seafood is sourced from local waters and imported from the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. Therefore, the choices we make as consumers are instrumental in supporting sustainable fisheries, restoring depleted local fish stock as well as regionally and globally.

Choosing sustainable seafood ensures that future generations will still be able to feed from the sea.
