Due Singapore's little land space, much of our food is imported. Local fish farms supply ~10% of our local seafood.
Meet one of the local farmers, Dragonwana, trying to keep Singapore's food sustainability going. This farm to table tour will teach you the ins and outs of fish farming (breeding, feeding, harvesting), and how to grow plants. Dragonwana rears 2 main fishes for consumption: Jade Perch & Empurau
You'll also get a sneak peek at their Arowana farm, and learn about why the fish is so highly prized in Asia.
