Abstract: The seas surrounding Malaysia is one of the largest continental shelf areas in the world contain very productive and diverse habitat and should therefore be the centre for marine biological research and data collection. Though there have been some studies on marine biodiversity dated back to mid 30's, the data collection and information gathered are however far from satisfaction. The process of data collection is in progress by time and though the process of mega-biodiversity recording is somehow jeopardized by inadequacy of taxonomists in the country. Nevertheless, the status of marine biodiversity studies around Malaysian waters is examined towards a better approach for future prospects in research and management of this valuable yet fragile ecosystem.
