1 . Pakistan     Pakistan
While there is little published information describing the sub-littoral marine communities of Pakistan, this country is not believed to have any true coral reefs. However, coral communities on hard substrates are suspected, particularly in the east. Any such communities may be very similar to those described for southern Arabia.

2 . Pakistan     Pakistan
The coral communities along the Baluchistan coast have been poorly studied, although surveys around Jiwani and the area near Astola Island identified 25 coral species and 77 reef fish species. National capacity to survey and monitor coral reefs remains weak, while mangrove and coastal wetland management initiatives are better developed.
