(added 27 March:) WWF HK has produded more info on how to help fishermen and our economy, and for consumers re choices of seafood based on how sustainable the fisheries/fish farming are:
"A new study has concluded that Hong Kong would be missing a major economic opportunity by not acting swiftly to revitalize its marine fisheries. The study, "Rebuilding Hong Kong's Marine Fisheries: An Evaluation of Management Options," commissioned by WWF Hong Kong and undertaken by the world-renowned Fisheries Centre of the University of British Columbia (UBC) was released today. Among the key findings are that WWF's proposed changes to fisheries management could generate HK$1.3 to HK$2.6 billion over the next 25 years of net benefits to Hong Kong in comparison with current fisheries management, through revitalised fish stocks, more profitable fisheries, and new tourism and recreational opportunities in north-eastern waters."
"WWF launched a convenient, easy-to-use Seafood Guide today to promote the consumption of green and sustainably produced seafood. This is the first seafood guide in East Asia to cover a wide range of seafood using the latest information. Consumers and corporate diners are encouraged to actively use the Guide as a reference when buying seafood at markets and dining out. The project is sponsored by JNC Nature Fund.
More than 60 popular seafood species are included in the Guide."
