Closed system ‘close season’ proposal for Pulau Payar 

LANGKAWI: The Department of Marine Park Malaysia (JTLM) plans to create a closed system for the ‘close season’ in the Pulau Payar Marine Park here to help balance the ecosystem of the island.

Director-General Sukarno Wagiman said the reason JTLM wanted to create a closed system was to allow a ‘respite’ for the coral reefs from recreational activities such as diving and snorkelling.

He said if the system was implemented next year (2014), the closure process will be observed for a minimum of once a month to allow the corals a ‘rest’ and thus keep the balance of the ecosystem.
