Millions of fish washed up on the shores of Singapore just over a week ago, some farmed, some wild . Other dead sea creatures too, like Moray eels, Pufferfish, Barracuda and Cuttlefish! Enough dead animals to warrant an article in the BBC News. How much do you know of what caused the mass fish deaths and why? Shannon Lim (OnHand Agrarian), one of our local fish farmers, will host this quiz.
As suitable for the quiz theme, The Hangar will be cooking up a delicious seafood paella of sustainably sourced seafood.
