Primary Production on Ubin
The existance of the natural resources of Pulau Ubin has meant that the land uses differed from the mainland of Singapore because the island was used mainly for primary production activities such as fishing, agriculture or quarrying. Socially, there is also a difference because the island has been cut off from the mainstream of Singapore life generally.
Before the currentt boom in weekend recreation, there were four traditional land uses as follows:
Aquatic land uses
Farmlands and old plantations
Settlements and associated land uses.
