Hong Kong has diverse seafood markets that appeal to a population with a high diversity of culinary tastes. The region is also rich in fishing history and culture. Visiting the local wet seafood market will provide a better understanding of the consumer appetite for seafood in Asia. Exploring the culture and history of the markets and the Aberdeen harbor will reveal local perceptions of seafood relating to ocean and human health, and local initiatives working on seafood sustainability.
Several local partners including WWF HK, Agriculture Fisheries and Conservation Dept HK and Fish Marketing Organization will guide us through the Fish Education Centre and then into the wholesale market in Aberdeen, a typical wet market in Ap Lei Chau. After learning about the market and local seafood we will ferry across the harbor to a delicious sustainable seafood lunch at the landmark double-story floating restaurant, Jumbo Kingdom. Then it is back to the Shangri-La, just in time for the afternoon workshop.
