Cornish, A.S. and McKellar, D. (1998) A history of fishing with explosives and poisons in Hong Kong waters. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 21(3), pp. 4-9.
Fishing with explosives is still being practiced aroung Hong Kong. The first legislation against blast fishing was passed in Hong Kong in 1903. Since then, successive legislation has increased the penalties and fines on blast fishing and fishing with poisons. However, the problem has not been eliminated as enforcement puts pressure on the resources of the marine police. It would be more effective to educate the local communities on the destructive effects of these practices and make them more vigilant and responsible in controlling them.
