  • The restoration of coral reefs,
  • Education and awareness of visitors on marine conservation issues,
  • Protection, and treatment, of marine species.

MERC is also committed to supporting the practice of aquaculture of high value life fish in an effort to reduce the pressure on wild fish sources, by creating a close collaboration with Borneo Eco Fish.
