Brief notes on the important of mangrove in Sabah

Brief notes on the important of mangrove in Sabah. Project Report. Forest Research Centre, Sabah Forestry Department, Sandakan, Sabah. (2020)


Mangroves dominate natural shorelines of Sabah and occupied approximately 60% of the total mangroves of Malaysia, yet their utilization by fishes, shrimps and other marine fauna is poorly understood. The focus of this notes is to identify the importance of mangrove habitats in relation to assemblage-level patterns of fish use, with very few studies or reviews on species-specific estimates of abundance, growth, mortality, and secondary production. It is hope that more studies will be carried out and strive towards obtaining such estimates, gauging the importance of mangroves as fish and marine fauna habitat and their broader contribution to ecosystem diversity and net production that indirectly beneficial to local communities' livelihoods. The activity on mangrove rehabilitation and restoration efforts will be continued as to balance the degradation of mangrove over the past 30 years. Efforts are needed to balance natural resource protection with pressing socioeconomic considerations.
