About the Event
Few people are aware of just how diverse Hong Kong’s marine life is, and there are even fewer people are aware that there are more than 400 species of reef fish in Hong Kong!
Since 2014, the 114°E Survey Working Group @114eHKReefFishSurvey (https://www.114ehkreeffish.org/?lang=en) has been conducting scuba diving underwater census throughout Hong Kong’s eastern waters with volunteer surveyors to document all the encountered reef fish species. More than 400 species have been recorded to date, including 50 that are new to Hong Kong’s official records.
Join us for an introduction to learn more about Hong Kong’s colourful reef fishes, and have a taste of what it’s like to conduct underwater research here!
