Fisheries

In consultation with the Singapore Fish Merchants’ General Association and the Punggol Fish Merchants’ Association, temperature screening measures and entry restrictions have been implemented at the Jurong and Senoko Fishery Ports in view of the COVID-19 situation.

As a precautionary measure, casual seafood buyers and non-trade visitors are not allowed to enter the fishery ports during this period to prevent mingling of large crowds at the facilities. We will update this page when the entry restrictions are lifted.
