Sustainability of Deep Bay Wetlands Forum
24 January 2019
The ecological values of Deep Bay wetlands that include a mixture of natural and man-modified habitats to migratory water birds are well recognized. However, large areas of fish ponds have been abandoned over the years and susceptible to the colonization by invasive exotic plants. This has significant impacts on the ecological and social value of the fish ponds.
How to sustain the Deep Bay wetlands was discussed among the stakeholders in the Forum, drawing on overseas experiences of conserving and managing private wetlands and local knowledge on the changing Deep Bay ecosystem.
