Good seafood shop in singapore that marks country of origin?

Post by dubplate » Sun, 14 Aug 2011 7:59 pm

ok,

So i am 5 months into living in Singapore now

I've got advice on a couple of good butchers and coffee shops.

I am looking for a seafood shop - the price for seafood in cold price etc seems high.

ideally, id like a seafood specialty shop that marks country of origin on the products - looking to buy Australian/ new Zealand/ European seafood.

ideas?

thanks

If it's saltwater seafood, how can you be sure of the country of origin? Japanese Tuna may come from North Atlantic waters or off Australia or NZ. It would only be freshwater seafood that would actually have a country of origin that would be valid.

It's illegal not to! Report them to AVA if if the imported food does not have the place of origin and the name of importer.

Is that processed origin or caught origin? Just curious.
