Scope of work:
“114˚E” is the longitudinal coordinates marking the eastern territories of Hong Kong waters, where most of this project’s survey dives take place. Shielded from the influx of freshwater from the Pearl River Delta towards the west side of Hong Kong, the eastern waters enjoy a relatively higher underwater visibility throughout most days of the warmer months when surveys are conducted, providing safer and more favourable conditions for the underwater visual census.
To establish baseline knowledge of Hong Kong’s reef fish, the team at 114ehkreeffish.org run scientific underwater surveys – run by citizen scientists, overseen and guided by the project’s marine researchers. The site is a directory oh HK’s reef fish and dive sites and provides a plethora of informational data for users.
