Malaysia has an extensive coastline of 4,675km in total and is hemmed in on all sides by seas – the Straits of Malacca, the Sulu Sea, the South China Sea and the Andaman Sea. And all these waters are located within the Coral Triangle, a rich marine ecosystem with nearly 600 species of corals and more than 2,000 species of fish.

While we have a number of marine parks that help to protect Malaysia’s part of this crucial area of biodiversity, we need to do more, says the Fisheries Department.
