Singapore is the world’s largest exporter of ornamental fish. Koi, guppies, and goldfish are among the popular breeds of fish exported and you can view them all at Mainland Tropical Fish Farm in Pasir Ris.

Established in the 1970s, Mainland Tropical Fish Farm started off as small-scale fish breeder in Sembawang. Fast forward to the 2000s and the company is now located at Pasir Ris Farmway 1 with multiple outdoor ponds, tanks laden with fish, and trading partners around the world.
