Protecting Fish Stocks in the Lesser Sunda Ecoregion
As the world’s largest archipelagic nation, Indonesia harbors unparalleled biodiversity that forms an important part of the country’s natural heritage and is an essential economic resource. Indonesia is home to the world’s most diverse coral reefs and tens of millions of people rely on these reefs and coastal areas as a source of food and income. Fish from the Lesser Sunda Ecoregion is consumed not only by people living there, but also those living in the rest of Indonesia and other parts of Asia, including Hong Kong.
But unsustainable fishing practices threaten to diminish the bounty of Lesser Sunda’s seas: if fish stocks aren’t carefully managed, the seafood that supplies both locals and people like us here in Hong Kong could quickly disappear.
