Over the years, WWF have become aware, via suppliers they work with on a day-to-day basis, that sales of sustainable seafood have gone up significantly. Which is great news! However, they are lacking in data on consumers’ awareness and support.  Therefore, they are conducting a simple online 9-question survey in the pursuit of gleaning a better understanding on the matter. The information provided is unequivocally helpful to improve their programme, which intends to translate into a larger conservation impact for our marine resources and habitat. Something that all Hong Kong dwellers can agree is of utmost importance.

This is incredibly significant and a sign of the movements forward that being made in that industry.
