The enactment of Marine Parks Ordinance (Cap. 476) in 1995 laid the milestone of marine conservation in Hong Kong. This Ordinance provides for designation, control and management of marine parks and marine reserve. It also stipulates the Director of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation as the Country and Marine Parks Authority which is advised by the Country and Marine Parks Board. The Marine Parks and Marine Reserves Regulation was enacted in July 1996 to provide for the prohibition and control of certain activities in marine parks or marine reserve.
