Sustainable Fishing

By 2020, effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based management plans, in order to restore fish stocks in the shortest time feasible, at least to levels that can produce maximum sustainable yield as determined by their biological characteristics.

Indicator 14.4.1 | Proportion of fish stocks within biologically sustainable levels

Not applicable to Singapore.

ASEAN Priority SDG Indicator 


Conserve Coastal and Marine Areas

By 2020, conserve at least 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas, consistent with national and international law and based on the best available scientific information.

Indicator 14.5.1 | Coverage of protected areas in relation to marine areas

0% as Singapore does not have legally protected marine areas. However, the Sisters' Islands Marine Park is designated for the conservation of marine biodiversity. In addition, extensive surveys and research are conducted to enhance marine habitats and enrich biodiversity in Singapore's coastal and marine areas.
