OUR STORY

Marine Stewards Singapore Limited is a non-profit organisation founded in 2019 that seeks to make marine conservation mainstream and accessible in Singapore.

It started when ocean lover Sue Ye noticed a sustained decline in fishing catch rates, and brought together representatives of the fishing industry as well as academia and government bodies to promote sustainable fishing practices in Singapore. These efforts resulted in Singapore's first set of sustainable fishing guidelines and Fish ID cards.

The group has since expanded its marine conservation efforts to encompass Biodiversity, Habitats and Pollution threats to our ocean. Our citizen science programme resulted in a new biodiversity record created of the Anomalorhiza shawi jellyfish in Singapore waters, and also uncovered illegal sales of the critically endangered shovelnose ray in local wet markets.

We aim to be as inclusive as possible. At the end of the day, we love the sea and that is our common thread. It unites us, and together we are strong! We run our conservation programmes across a range of popular sea sports, including diving, fishing and kayaking, as we bridge the gap between sea sports enthusiasts and marine conservation efforts.

Marine Stewards is represented at engagement sessions with various government agencies. With its members and volunteers, Marine Stewards has grown to a following of over 8,000 people on Facebook and 100+ paid members.
