Unfortunately, some of you may have heard about the evil mercury and may have even stop having fish altogether. But you don’t have to, because the fishes sold in Singapore are well taken care of. Agri-food and Veterinary  Authority of Singapore (AVA) only allows predatory fish and other seafood with a maximum of 1 ppm and 0.5 ppm of mercury respectively to enter Singapore. That is very little! Also, the benefits of having fish outweighs the risk of the minute amount of contamination. However, for the glowing pregnant mummies, do avoid consuming the deep sea fish such as Sharks, Swordfish, Tilefish and Batang fish, in order to prevent any adverse effects on the baby.
