Abstract

The Marine tourism industry is one of the most significant economic sectors in Malaysia due to the country's richness in marine biodiversity. For the past two decades, Marine Park Islands (MPIs) in Peninsular Malaysia have been receiving high numbers of tourist arrivals. Overdevelopment of tourist accommodations on the MPIs is causing rapid degradation of marine ecological assets. Three issues were identified. The issues are (a) overdevelopment of the Micro and Small Island Chalets (MSICs) on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia MPIs which causes cumulative negative impacts on the marine ecological assets, (b) low performance of green operation practices by MSIC operators and (c) shortcoming in the management of the East Coast Peninsular Malaysia MPIs by related local authorities. Limited literatures are available regarding the issues. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to provide appropriate recommendations for the three key, which will help to reduce the degradation of the East Coast Peninsular Malaysia MPIs' marine ecological assets. Four objectives were outlined. The first objective is to identify and analyse the negative impacts of the MSICs operation on the marine ecological assets of the East Coast Peninsular Malaysia's MPIs. The second objective is to determine MSICs green operation practices performance levels. The third objective is to investigate the most significant barriers faced by the MSIC operators in performing green operation practices and the last objective is to recognised the management barriers faced by the local authorities in managing the Tioman, Perhentian, Redang and Kapas Island. Data were collected using mixed method approach such as combination of qualitative and quantitative method involving several strategies such as survey questionnaire, semi-structured interviews, structured observations and document analysis…
