Abstract

A study was carried out at Setiu Wetland, in the southern part of the South China Sea (Malaysia) to determine the surface water distribution of nitrogen and phosphorus compounds. It was observed that the impact of human activities such as agriculture and aquaculture were responsible for higher nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations recorded in the study area. However, with respect to the Malaysian Marine Water Quality Criteria and Standard, most of the mean concentrations of nutrients were in Class 1 suggesting the nutrients were in line with sustainable conservation of the marine protected areas and marine parks of this wetland area. The results also revealed that most of the nutrients measured were generally higher compared to the previous study carried out in the same study area.
