KUALA TERENGGANU: The El Nino phenomenon currently affecting the country is expected to have an impact on marine life and the reproduction of coral reef in Terengganu waters, according to an expert.

The phenomenon, which is expected to prolong until the end of March, may destroy the marine life and coral reef due to the warming of the sea surface, said Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) School of Marine Science and Environment senior lecturer Dr Hasrizal Shaari.
