Water quality of the Madang Lagoon, Papua New Guinea: A status report

Very little is known about the water quality parameters of marine ecosystems in Papua New Guinea (PNG). While several studies converge in classifying these ecosystems as among the richest in the world in terms of marine biodiversity (Pearse, 1988; Rau, 1988; Gosliner et al., 1996; Maniwavie, 2000; Karlson et al., 2004), relatively little can be said about the status of their waters, although water pollution and pressures on marine environments are increasingly becoming a concern among coastal people in PNG.
