Singapore: Seafood Report 2017

Singaporeans love seafood, not to mention a fair share of 16.4 million visitors in 2016 who together rang up sales valued US$1.07 billion for imports. The U.S. share was 1.8 percent or US$20 million. American lobsters, oysters, cod and sword fish, sock-eye salmon, scallops, mussels and clams are popular and offer the best potential. There could be opportunities to supply U.S. fish, such as Alaskan Pollack, to manufacturers of high quality fish balls, surimi and other processed seafood products. It’s also worth looking into the feasibility of developing a market for other types of U.S. seafood such as various carps, Dogfish, Ocean Perch, Sheepshead, Bigmouth Buffalo, Skate and Ocean Perch.
