Event: Press conference on CityU-led study: Marine biodiversity in local waters boosted by trawl ban
Date: 25 March 2021 (Thursday)
Time:  11:15 am (Register at the CityU entrance connecting Festival walk at 11:00 am)
Venue: P4701 (Purple zone), Yeung Kin Man Academic Building

                     
An inter-university research team led by Professor Kenneth Leung Mei-yee, Director of State Key Laboratory of Marine Pollution at City University of Hong Kong and Chair Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry finds that the prohibition of territory-wide trawling activities in Hong Kong waters for two and a half years has led to substantial increases in the richness of species and the abundance of benthic marine organisms. 

Professor Leung will introduce the findings of the study and demonstrate some of the fisheries in Hong Kong waters after trawl ban at the press conference.
