The management of marine tourism activities falls under the Environmental Protection Ordinance (2016) and associated license, regulations and policies, which were heavily consulted on prior to their approval. The MMP acknowledges the threats associated with this use, and lists the current management measures supporting a sustainable approach to marine tourism. See Part 1, section 5 for Threats and Part 1, section 6 for Governance (legislation and policies). Part 2, objective 2.3 summarises the management actions required to ensure minimal impact on the marine environment whilst continuing to support economic development for the next 5 years.
