Sustainable Seafood Research Assistant at BLOOM Association Hong Kong

How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Sustainable Seafood Research Assistant

Help us build a database of sustainable seafood in Hong Kong by communicating with the F&B industry (commitment time flexible)

Project Details

What we need

  • Contacting restaurants to ask about their sustainable seafood provision
  • Making enquiries about the origins of seafood found in Hong Kong's restaurants


We all love to eat seafood in Hong Kong - but have you ever considered where your seafood comes from? More than 90% of the world's oceans are already considered over- or fully- exploited. As a city with one of the highest per capita seafood consumption in the world, our choice as consumers can make a real impact on the survival of marine species."Sustainable seafood" provides an alternative for seafood-lovers to continue enjoying what they love, without further endangering marine animals that are already threatened with extinction. In this project, we will build a database of all the restaurants where you can find and enjoy sustainable seafood in Hong Kong. Help us build this database to give conscious consumers the option to eat sustainably!

What we have

Guidance on project methodology.

Why this is important

By helping us to generate this sustainable seafood database for Hong Kong, you help us move significantly closer to the goal of enabling sustainable eating habits in Hong Kong!
