Satang Besar Island has good coral cover in area Kuching, Sarawak. This study done to identified and quantified the indicator fish and invertebrates at coral reef of Pulau Satang Besar, determine the community composition and biodiversity indices, and identified the health status of coral reefs based on fish and invertebrates indicators. Indicator fish and invertebrates data were collected using modified reef check method, a belt transect of 3 m x 20 m and photography technique to take picture of fish and invertebrates for identification. Idenification done in laboratory up to genus level. Total of 18 genera were sampled from 11 families of indicator fish and 2 genera sampled from two families of indicator invertebrates. Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index = 1.37 to 2.18; Simpson Diversity Index = 0.24 to 0.33; Berger-Parker Dominance Diversity Index = 0.34 to 0.46 and Pielou’s Eveness = 0.60 to 0.83. The indices for invertebrates: Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index = 0 to 0.68; Simpson Diversity Index = 0 to 0.52; Berger-Parker Dominance Diversity Index = 0 to 0.65 and Pielou’s Eveness = 0 to 0.98. The statistical analysis using One-way ANOVA showed that there no significant difference between stations (p=0.702). The presence of indicator fish and invertebrates showing the coral health at Satang Besar Island.
