Lunch meeting: Speaker Rtn Timothy Ng on Ocean Park

Two birthdays to celebrate today:  Rtn Timothy’s and Rtn Mimi’s.  We sang a birthday song to them and President Michael presented them a bottle of red wine as birthday gift from the club.

Our speaker today was Rtn Timothy, who spoke about “Sustainable Seafood”.  Rtn Timothy said Ocean Park uses the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) seafood guide in the park and will not serve the seafood in the “Avoid” category in their restaurant.  More than 70 percent of the world’s commercial marine fish stocks are either fully exploited or overfished.

WWF encourages customers to consume sustainable seafood such as Pacific salmon, sardines, clams and squid.  Also Rtn Timothy recommended that we not consume shark products, Humphead Wrasse and Caviar.

Hon. Sec. Shri collected HK$1120 for raffle and fines.  PP Nick’s son Alex help to drew the raffle gifts: a box of candy and tote bag and the winner was Rtn Joe.
