CNA INSIDERS feature our CEO Malcolm Ong, as they cover the challenges he faced transiting into the Aquaculture industry. Fish farming in Singapore has been growing rapidly in recent years. One of the most notable fish farms in Singapore is The Fish Farmer, founded by Malcolm Ong. With over 20 years of experience in the IT industry, Malcolm turned his hand full-time to aquaculture and now owns 4 sea-based farms that produce about 1,000 tonnes of fish a year using traditional methods. Some of the fish species farmed by The Fish Farmer include milkfish, grey mullet, red snapper, barramundi (Asian sea bass), golden pomfret and sea perch. To double production sustainably, Malcolm has joined hands with scientists under the Singapore Food Agency’s AquaPolis R&D programme. The goal for Malcolm is to develop superior fingerlings with faster growth rates, lower mortality from common fish diseases, and higher Omega-3 content. Singapore imports over 90% of its food but has set a “30 by 30” goal to ramp up the capability and capacity of the agri-food industry to sustainably produce 30% of its nutritional needs by 2030. Aquaculture is a priority in this. If you’re looking for fresh and locally sourced fish in Singapore, then look no further than The Fish Farmer.
Amid the global food crisis and dwindling fish stocks, The Fish Farmers farm is leading the charge towards sustainable seafood in Singapore using new aquaculture technologies. As two-thirds of the world’s fish stocks are already being fished at their limits, Our goal is to provide a promising solution to overfishing. However, this rise in fish farming is under threat due to climate change and poor maintenance. To address this, our high-tech fish farms are developed as sustainable alternatives to traditional fishing practices. Ultimately, the fish industry must reform itself to become more equitable and sustainable.
In order for The Fish Farmer to keep up with current technological trends and changing climate we have sent out the youngest and greatest minds to the AquaPolis programme to better prepare for the future and meet Singapore’s 30 by 30 goal.
