PHUKET:-- The second and last public hearing was held at the meeting room of the Supalai Resort & Spa in Pa Khlok yesterday (Oct 11) for a new B450 million marina and sports complex project at Ao Kung Bay in Pa Khlok with disapproval for the project being shown from an Ao Kung Bay conservation group and marine ecosystems specialists yesterday.

 

Speaking at yesterday’s hearing, marine ecosystem and resource management specialist Mr Wankiat Thubtimsaeng expressed his concern about the construction of the project in the public’s interest.

 

“The area of Ao Kung is a very ecological area. As it is located on the east coast of Phuket, the seagrass beds and coral reefs are complete. Shrimp farms have a complete marine ecosystem, and this is the livelihood of the villagers,” said Mr Wankiat.
