Studies were conducted in the field and laboratory to determine the community structure of macrobenthos species in the subtidal area of Tanjung Bajong, Sebuyau, Sarawak. Sediments were collected in six stations using Van Veen Grab sampler and simple flow through corer sampler for sediment collected. Four phyla of macrobenthos (Mollusca, Annelida, Arthropoda and Echinodermata) were recorded in which include four species of polychaetes, two species of malacostraca crustacean, one species of bivalve and one species of echinoderm. The species numbers of polychaetes were found to be dominant at all stations. The species diversity of macrobenthos ranged from 1.58 to 2.32. Macrobenthos found in Tanjung Bajong are typical of animals found in tropical waters.
