Coral Restoration Programme

Research indicates that although Malaysian reefs have a relatively high average level of live coral cover at 40.63%, a decline has been recorded over recent years. This is largely due to human impact such as over-fishing, pollution, coastal development and climate change. 

Since its launch, the Fish For The Future programme has focused its efforts on the conservation and propagation of coral reefs and the marine life which these reefs support. The programme commenced with the insertion of five Artificial Reefs in Datai Bay; steel devices that provide a safe haven for fish to feed and populate as well as a settlement site for coral larvae and rehabilitated corals from our Coral Nursery.

We have worked with the Department of Fisheries Malaysia (DOF), who have been sponsoring coral frames and coral nubbins to place in donated Coral Frames and our Artificial Reefs. 

Another initiative is the Coral Restoration Programme, and ongoing effort by our team of marine biologists consisting of Coral Rescue, Rehab and Replant initiatives in Datai Bay to aid in conservation and research work.
