ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS ABOUT FARMED FISHES

We believe in interacting with our customers and answering all questions big or small. Common questions we get are: 

- 这是海的吗? (Is this from the sea?) 

- 这是养的还是野抓的? (Is this farmed or wild-caught?)

The answer you will get to the first question is usually yes, it is from the sea; because most of the seafood consumed/ favoured by Singaporeans are from the sea. It is also very common for seafood to be farmed in the sea these days.

For the second question, if the answer "farmed" turns you off, ask yourself why. If the answer is that you are concerned about what the fish eats, if the fish has been injected with hormones/ chemicals/ antibiotics, why don't you ask those questions instead? Below, we provide a short list of questions to ask the next time you shop for fish to eat cleaner and better. 

If the fish is farmed:

1. When farmed, how is the spread of disease prevented? 

We would prefer fishes that go through vaccination/ seclusion so that we do not expose ourselves to too much antibiotics.

2. Are there unhealthy chemicals added to make the fish look better?

Say no to fishes where formalin and other unnatural additives have been added.

3. Does the farm abide by any good farming practices?

There are many different types of farming certifications globally. In Singapore, the “Good Aquaculture Practice for Fish Farming” mark is an official mark to be put only on food fish produced by certified fish farms. Read more here.

At Dishthefish, we are very selective about the suppliers that we work with. Over the upcoming months, you will see us featuring our suppliers and telling their stories. Stay tuned!

Highly Recommend but not for babies

Great subtle taste, really fresh and not at all like the European mackerel. Lovely texture too, cooks up very soft and flakes in large pieces. However I ordered the fish filleted and there were quite a lot of bones, it's ok for me but I definitely would not recommend to serve to toddlers or babies because of this.

👍Lobster tails

yummy n easy to work with

Great tasting fish!

whole family loved the taste of this fish. Feels great to know its also sustainably raised. Will be ordering this again.

Fresh Scallops

Prepared the hotate in sashimi style with uni and ikura. The smooth and tender texture of the hotate combined well with the creaminess of the uni balanced by the crunch of the ikura. Added small strips of Japanese cucumber to lighten the palate. Overall super satisfied with the purchase.

Well Received!

Will buy again.
