What is the distribution of Coral Communities in Hong Kong?

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

Scientific database

We have just 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. 

Reference Collection

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. 

   

We have also set up a reference collection containing a complete set of all 84 hard coral specimens for public education and exhibition.
