Fish farmers in Pasir Ris running out of lease time


Fish farmers in Pasir Ris are worried that once the lease on their farm is up, their businesses have to fold.

Fourteen farms in Pasir Ris will have to leave by December 2014, as the land, which covers an area of more than 200,000 sq m, will be used for industrial development.

So far, there is no other location where they can relocate.

The farmers, who either breed ornamental fish or edible fish (also known as food fish), are hopeful that the authorities will provide a new plot of land for their farms.
