Jul 1, 2021

42 islands have been gazetted as Marine Parks under Part ix -Malaysian Fisheries Act 1985. It serves as a marine protected area, especially the marine coral reef ecosystem. The importance of conserving fisheries resources is the main agenda of the country to ensure the continuity of our food security. The Marine Park also generates an economy through tourism activities with aesthetic value such as diving, panoramic and cultural activities. Love our Marine Park such as Tioman Island in Pahang. Tioman Island is like an impressive jewel of the World Ocean from the diversity of terrestrial and marine biology.
