Artificial reefs proposed for Lantau waters

Posted in : News on by : Around DB Comments: 0

Marine life in the waters off North Lantau could be set for a boost if new government proposals get the go-ahead.

The plans, announced last Friday (June 29) in the Government Gazette, would see a number of artificial reefs deployed in the Brothers Marine Park, located to the east of Chek Lap Kok.

The proposed works, tentatively scheduled to commerce towards the end of 2018, would cover an area of approximately 0.7 hectares within the marine park.

Anyone with an objection to the plans is advised to write to the Director of Lands at the Lands Department’s North Point Office on or before August 29.

The Brothers Marine Park, which covers a total sea area of 970 hectares to the north of Lantau, was established in December 2016 in order to help conserve the habitat of the Chinese White Dolphins and to enhance Marine life.
