Stanley Main Beach and St. Stephen's Beach Water Sports Centres to be closed
*************************************************

Following the sighting of shark near the shore at Sam Po Shek by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department today (July 6), the Stanley Main Beach and St. Stephen's Beach Water Sports Centres managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will be closed from tomorrow (July 7). Meanwhile, the Jockey Club Wong Shek Water Sports Centre and Tai Mei Tuk Water Sports Centre will continue to be closed.

The water sports activities at the artificial lake of Chong Hing Water Sports Centre will continue but all sea touring activities away from the centre will be suspended. Staff will closely monitor the situation of the waters.

The LCSD will keep close contacts with other government departments, including the Police, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department and the Government Flying Service. The special measures taken at the water sports centres will be lifted when there is no threat of shark.

In the meantime, staff of all gazetted beaches will keep a close watch on the water areas. They will remind the public to swim within swimming zones enclosed by shark protection nets which are inspected by contractors twice a week. Independent contractors will also conduct re-checks so as to make sure that the shark prevention nets function properly.
