Malaysia is the 43rd most populated country and the 66th largest country by total land area in the world, with a population of about 28 million and land area of over 320,000 km2 respectively. The two distinct parts of Malaysia, separated from each other by the South China Sea, share a largely similar landscape in that both West and East Malaysia. Malaysia has strong potential in the global maritime industry. Malaysia depends on the ocean for resources, defense, shipping services, ports, and tourism for facilitating external trade. Malaysia possesses a coastline of 3,400 km and with the declaration of the Exclusive Economic Zone has control over the marine resources within 160,000 square nautical miles. The United Nations has declared 1998 as the International Year of the Ocean and yet, few people in Malaysia realized the importance of the sea and its biodiversity and other marine resources. This importance cannot be underestimated for the sea provides variety of resources and industries to Malaysia. Besides, the sea is almost twice the size of the land mass. Trade flows in and out of the country via shipping and commercial activities such as cruise shipping and marine tourism depends upon the attraction of the ocean to draw tourists especially from overseas who bring in much needed foreign exchange. This book represents the views of experts in various field, notably fishery, port and shipping, marine resources and maritime strategic issues. It is hope that this book will serve as material to scholars and researchers interested in the maritime issues in Malaysia exclusively.
