The Living Seas

Beneath Malaysia's waves, many creatures live out their life relatively close to their place of birth. We also find pelagic fish that roam the open sea and turtles, which migrate over enormous distances. From large Manta Rays and whales to tiny single-celled algae, from huge shoals of barracuda and caranx to solitary blennies and nudibranchs, Malaysia is truly a country surrounded by living seas.

Fortunately, the Malaysian Government has diligently embarked on a policy of conservation and prevention. The Department of Fisheries has been running ongoing programmes of research and education and has identified significant areas of marine habitat, which have been gazetted as Marine Parks. The upside has been a boom in the eco-tourism industry.
