Do you know the work of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department on coral conservation?

Scientific database

We have completed a study to verify and update all hard corals recorded in our local waters. A total of 84 hard coral species, from 28 genera of 12 families were confirmed. A field guide documenting 20 coral species commonly found in marine parks has been uploaded to the department website. Field characteristics and appearance and technical key for identification of these coral species are described.
