The seafood below is commonly available in Hong Kong, but they each have one or more of the adjacent characteristics and should therefore not be eaten.


Unless your supermarket or restaurant server is able to tell you the species, origin, fishing or farming method of the seafood, and in line with WWF-Hong Kong’s Seafood Guide “Green” or “Yellow” categories, we suggest you don’t buy or order it.

Choose Right Today, More Left Tomorrow

The Choose Right Today website is a first step in providing online guidance about sustainable seafood to consumers in Hong Kong; detailing why it is important, what it is and where you can find it.

Sustainable seafood is seafood that has been captured or farmed in a way that minimises harm to the marine environment and where the population of the target species is not being overfished. It comes from well-managed fisheries or farms so that our oceans remain healthy. Fish and shellfish populations will then thrive and be available for future generations.
