No Fish Today...


If you have been at the fish market and were wondering as to the short supply of fish and the soaring prices, know that there is some sort of a fish protest going on in Malaysia.

The Fisheries Development Authority of Malaysia (LKIM) now requires local distributors and wholesalers to use insulated fish containers from only one supplier.

The ruling, which came into effect last week, has been criticised by the distributors and wholesalers.


Apparently, these insulated containers cost more than the ones that are being used and that are easily available.

How much is a kilo of fish these days in KL? Say, pomfret (white/black). It used to be around RM15 to RM20 during my days in Malaysia. Is it still that price?

Ai Shiang, I am not quite sure but it is seasonal as during Chinese New Year, the price of pomfret can go as high as RM55. And they are still sold out.
