Is there any coral reef in Hong Kong waters?

Coral Colonies found at Bluff Island

Corals in Hong Kong usually direct attach onto boulders and bedrock and form scattered fringing coral communities along the coast. They assemble into small sub-tidal reefs but rarely into intertidal colonies because of the low air temperature in winter. The greatest abundance of stony corals is found at about -1 m to -3 m C.D. in depth and unlikely extend to more than -10 m C.D.
