Draft Legislation for Implementation of the Convention on the

Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources in Hong Kong

Consultation Forum


    The Government has consulted relevant stakeholders about the proposal to introduce a new piece of legislation for implementing the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (“CCAMLR”) in Hong Kong. The draft legislation is expected to be introduced into the Legislative Council for scrutiny in 2018/19, including a subsidiary legislation for implementing the Catch Documentation Scheme for toothfish (Dissostichus spp.).  Under the Catch Documentation Scheme, each catch or shipment of Dissostichus spp. must be accompanied by a valid catch, export or re-export document issued in accordance with the relevant Conservation Measure under the CCAMLR. 

    To engage the stakeholders and solicit their views on the draft legislation, we have arranged four identical consultation forums for different stakeholders. Interested parties may choose to attend one of the forms according to the nature of their business. Details of the forums are as follows:
