A study was conducted in order to obtain spatio-temporal data on fish larvae assemblages within Sarawak coastal waters. Spatial study was conducted with one time sampling at six intertidal areas (Pantai Teluk Pandan, Pantai Rambungan, Pantai Puteri, Pulau Satang, Pulau Sampadi and Pantai Mukah) using modified seine net with bag (April 2012-March 2013), while spatio-temporal study was focused at Sungai Sibu Laut-Sungai Salak estuaries using plankton net with monthly sampling for a year (October 2012-September 2013). Seine net (1 mm mesh) was pulled by two people along the beach for about two minutes, while plankton net (0.5 mm mesh) was towed obliquely by boat for about 10 minutes. Simultaneously, physico-chemical parameters of water (dissolved oxygen, temperature, turbidity, salinity and pH) were measured in-situ. Checklist of fish larvae family was prepared with general description of each family. Throughout this study, a total of 25,297 fish larvae were collected which consist of 13 orders belonging to 38 identified families.
