Marine Profiling of Marudu Bay, Sabah, Malaysia
This study was originally planned to gather information for the marine profiling of Marudu Bay, including its coastline, during the northeast monsoon season. However, due to unavoidable delays, surveys were conducted instead during the southwest monsoon season, between June and December 2015. During this season, most afternoons are defined by rain beginning late October. In this report, we present the results of a comprehensive review of literature on the biota (fishes, marine invertebrates, other aquatic vertebrates like marine mammals and reptiles, corals and coral reef indicators, seagrasses, and mangroves) and abiotic factors (oceanographic parameters, water quality, and marine pollutants) of Marudu Bay, and the results of the field surveys in the bay.
