Fish Farm In Singapore



Fish Farm in Singapore
There are a number of fish farms in Singapore either in the Kranji area or Pasir Ris area.

The Kranji area offers much more with vegetable farms, fish farms, frog farm, crocodile farm and dairies. I was really keen on the dairy, unfortunately I read on the website that we are not allowed to feed or pet the goats due to AVA regulations. So, I scratched that plan. Information on Kranji can be found at http://www.kranjicountryside.com/

Pasir Ris Farmway offers fish farms and pet farms. Since it's nearer to my place, I decided to check that out instead. It's not really very convenient unless you drive or take a taxi in. I would suggest flagging a taxi either at Pasir Ris MRT Station or Pasir Ris Drive 12. Do note that some taxi drivers may not be aware of the fact that Farmway 1 is not along Farmway 2 and 3.  So, make sure that you know the general direction before hand. 

We went to Mainland Fish Farm at 1 Pasir Ris Farmway 1, there is also another place called Kids Kampong a bit further in, I did not get the chance to go in there (was alone with my two boys) but the pictures from their website looks interesting with their pet station and touch pool, safer too I think since their fish pools are quite shallow. 

But, back to Mainland Fish Farm, admission is free and it is open everyday from 8.30 am - 7.00pm. Activities available are Fish Spa (didn't check the price) Prawn Fishing ($15 per hour - i think) Feed the fish ($1 per small packet) and Longkang Fishing ($4 per half hour and you get to keep the fishes caught)

Since they also sell fishes, your kids will also have fun looking at the fishes in the tank, though aesthetic is not a big factor here. It's not really a touristy place but nice enough to spend maybe an hour or two with the kids with minimal money shell out at a non-crowded place. What more can you ask for?

Here are some pictures of the place.
