Guns, Condoms and a Lot of Dead Fish – Pui O

A day outing to Pui O beach with the kids. Aside from perfectly new water pistols, a used condom and unstoppable amounts of plastic trash, trapped in the lagoon behind a sandbank at low tide, there were also at least a hundred dead fish including a large puffer fish and two edible species, the grey mullet (Mugil cephalus) and the conger eel (Muraenesox cinereus), though these examples most definitely we’re not edible.

I am a ex-marine biologist now working for a regular job, but I am still passionate about marine biology and oceanography. I studied Marine Science and completed a PhD in deep-sea ecology and biodiversity. I fell in love with HK's rich marine environment when I was a child. This blog is my collection of interesting facts, news and articles that celebrate and educate on HK's diverse marine environment.
