The marine environmental quality is the key factor to influence the marine ecosystem and the marine bio- logical resources. Marine pollution on Taiwanis primary due to the city sewage, chemical fertilizers and pesticides, as well as industrial wastes that discharged directly into the nearby river system. Most of the downstream rivers as well as the western coast, where is the important Mariculture oysters and marine biological resources area, are already polluted by excessive organic materials from cities and industries. In order to safe guard our coastal environment and to protect our marine resources, since 1970, we (the scientists from physical, biological and geological divisions of Institute) have carried out several programs on hydrological, chemical, biological and geological studies along the western coast ofTaiwan. The present paper attempts to review of our thirty years observation on the Taiwan marine environmental qual- ity, especial focus on some events such as oil pollution, green oysters, coral decolorization, fish skeletal deformities, imposex on rock shells, etc.
