Seringat-Kias was created by reclaiming the submerged reefs of Seringat and Kias. Here's more about what was done to create Seringat-Kias. There is a large artificial C-shaped lagoon which we usually explore. Yesterday, I checked out the longer more land-bound lagoon to the west of the C-shaped lagoon.
Bazillion snails! And many signs of Sand bubbler crabs.
Common sea stars in the lagoon.
Spoon seagrasses, and many clumps of Bubble green seaweed.
Oysters and little Planaxis snails and Bazillion snails.
Bakau putih as well as other Bakau trees.
Merambong and a few small Nyireh bunga trees.
Teruntum putih (Endangered) and Chengam. There were also many small Chengam shrubs. How nice to see that mangroves have naturally settled in this artificial lagoon.
Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal where an amazing coral reef has settled naturally.
Apr 2012. On the sandy bottom, there were lots of small Flower crabs and Spotted moon crabs, including this pair of what seems to be mating Moon crabs. Along the higher shore, I got glimpses of Ghost crabs.
Olive flatworm that I first mistook for a dead leaf.
Fire anemone! I only saw a few small corals growing on the seawall. They were not bleaching.
Haddon's carpet anemone with a pair of anemone shrimps in it.
I saw more than ten Remarkable sea cucumbers, the most that I've seen on any other shore. There were also some Common sea stars and Cerianthids. There were small patches of tiny-bladed Spoon seagrasses and tiny Needle seagrass.
Jun 2013, I noticed that the fish farm had stacked a large pile of big pieces of wood on a tree that is already struggling to stay upright. Sigh.
The rest of the team checked out Lazarus Island and saw all kinds of amazing marine life. Check out their posts for more photos and stories.
