Biodiversity and Oyster Reefs of Hong Kong
There is currently no ecological or biological base li ne for oyster habitats in Hong Kong. These habitats are globally recognised to be biologically diverse and highly productive. Despite the long history of exploitation of oyster habitats in Hong Kong, with written records pre dating the Qing Dynasty (c.1630s), there is no information on their current status or the diversity of species which rely on them.
Overall, this project will establish the first comprehensive dataset for fauna associated with these remnant oyster habitats and provide a base line from which to manage them into the future.
