SINGAPORE: The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has introduced a certification scheme in a bid to ensure the safety and quality of local fish produce.
Four fish farms have been certified under the Good Aquaculture Practice for Fish Farming scheme for adopting good aquaculture practices. This pilot batch comprises farms under Barramundi Asia, Rong-Yao Fisheries, and Marine Life Aquaculture.   

Consumers can support these certified fish farms by buying their produce with this logo, which AVA CEO Tan Poh Hong describes as a "mark of quality".




 
Better feeding management and harvesting techniques are some of the practices Rong-Yao Fisheries has adopted to ensure the survival of its fish, and to raise productivity. Workers are trained to use computers, simplifying the process of keeping farm records on matters such as water quality.
Rong-Yao's business development manager Alawn Koh feels that more can be done to support the industry. "I would say currently our challenge is to raise awareness among local consumers of the quality and safety of local farm produce."
