Abstract: A survey of the fish diversity in the Marina Basin was conducted from March to October 2005 for the Public Utilities Board (PUB) to establish the pre-barrage baseline condition so that post-barrage changes in the ecosystem can be monitored and managed. A total of 139 fish species from 57 families is recorded. A critical assessment of the potential occupants of the Marina basin was carried out, in anticipation of the change in salinity that will be caused by the erection of the Marina Barrage. The likely species loss and possible new ones to be settled in the new reservoir created by the barrage building are examined. © National University of Singapore.
