1 . Brunei Darussalam     Brunei Darussalam
Brunei is another relatively small country located on the north coast of Borneo between Sarawak and Sabah. Much of the country inland remains forested and several rivers flow into the South China Sea. On the Sunda Shelf offshore the waters remain relatively shallow. There are no fringing reefs on the mainland, but the development around Pelong Rocks and Pulau Punyit may be considered fringing reefs. The majority of coral growth occurs on sub-littoral patch reefs and coral communities offshore, and some 185 scleractinian corals from 71 genera have been recorded.
