Underwater archaeology is a new subject for most Malaysians. There was little or no interest in it until quite recently when a Dutch East Indiaman, the Risdam, was located and looted by a Singapore-based company off the Mersing Coast in Johore 1984. The discovery had considerable publicity and created interest among Malaysians.
