The first dive of the 2003 Myanmar Reef Check/Europe Conservation Switzerland expedition was on a southern point of Parsons Island (Nge Lon Lett Phei). The six divers - Georg Heiss, Scott Linge, Olivier Mueller, Kim Obermeyer, Joel Pascal and Martin Rosenberg, began with an exploratory dive entering at a rocky point and diving in the direction of the beach. At the rocky tip there was low coral coverage and at least 50% bare rock with some fire corals. The substrate was obviously not favourable for coral settlement. Closer to the bay there was a large Acropora forest from 2-8m depth, with monospecific stands of several species, seemingly in good health, even though large fish are missing. We noted two possible dynamite craters. That evening we sailed on to the magnificent Macleod Island.
