Fish prices rise about 10%

SINGAPORE: The price of fish has risen by about 10 per cent, according to the Punggol Fish Merchants Association.

With the monsoon season and Ramadan fasting month coming up, the association said prices could continue to rise, especially for species like the white snapper and threadfin.

Some fishmongers and hawkers are feeling the pinch.

One of them told MediaCorp: "The fish used to cost S$8 to S$9 per kilogramme, but now it is S$12 to S$13."

The association said the recent death of fish in local farms should not have affected prices, as Singapore imports 95 per cent of its fish supply.
