The Talk

'Through the Fisheye Lens' - Hong Kong’s Marine Life Explained

Although only covering a tiny fraction of the South China Sea, Hong Kong's waters contain more than 6,000 recorded marine species! Every year scientists & divers add to the list, and even new species to science are being discovered. The summer months predictably turn up very rare reef fish species, and there has already been a slew of remarkable sightings this year. Andy will delve into how Hong Kong’s sub-tropical location & varied habitats have led to such a rich biodiversity, and why we see what we do underwater. Andy will also share how overfishing has tragically decimated these animals along this rich coast of Southern China, and the steps critically required to not just save, but to restore & conserve marine life in Hong Kong.

The talk will be very interactive, so bring your burning questions and be prepared to get involved!
