Bernama reported


KOTA MARUDU, May 21 (Bernama) -- The integrated eco-resource management study conducted on Marudu Bay by a team of university researchers has almost been completed, said Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili.

Speaking when launching the Marudu Bay Carnival here Saturday, he said the research and development projects coordinated by the ministry's National Oceanography Directorate involved funding of RM1.2million.

"The study, involving Universiti Pertanian Malaysia, Universiti Sains Malaysia and Universiti Malaysia Sabah, spells out sustainable development programmes to preserve the marine and eco-resources in Marudu Bay, while exploiting the resources to uplift the livelihood of the people there," he said.

Some of the findings of the studies, such as involving UPM's study on "Mangrove Ecosystem Study and Resource Management for Seafood and Sustainable Ecotourism for Coastal Communities", had been documented, he added.

As a result of the study, a workshop on eco-tourism management was conducted for 32 participants from eight villages which have the potential to be developed for eco-tourism.
