The ocean's bounty

Mersing is known for its abundance of sea food and diversity of marine life.

On a recent trip to the market, I was happy to see that the fish stocks have rebounded. There was plenty of fish and they were of a good size, meaning that the fishermen are not over-fishing.

The fish were really fresh and we bought some to steam that night.

Sungai Jemaluang a hidden gem

If you love to fish bring your fishing rods to Sungai Jemaluang. It's a small clean river about 8km south of Mersing. It is not connected to a town and has good fishing according to villagers. If you do visit, be a good citizen and keep the area clean by picking up after your selves.
