What is Symbiosis
SyMBiosIS is a searchable database for the marine organisms which can be found in Malaysia. This database is developed in-house by the Information and Communication Technology Division of the Ministry with technical inputs from the Department of Marine Park Malaysia.
Malaysia has been recognized as one of the 12 nations in the world that is rich in its marine biodiversity. It was the noble idea of our former Prime Minister who wished to inventories the marine biological resources in Malaysia. This is to better manage our marine resources and to avoid depletion of resources, unsustainable exploitation and development, and also extinction of species before being discovered. By having this database, we will be able to map out resources, to identify potential sites for protection and to better understand the status of our marine resources.
