The management of good governance of marine space administration has been debated since at least the 2000s. An extensive literature and research report it is hardly surprising then that this marine space is under serious threat from a myriad of overlapping and conflicting interests. The evidence of change is compelling and manifest. It is therefore imperative to manage, administer and govern the coastal zone in a considered, sustainable and structured manner as well as to protect and nurture the environment we live in. Failure to do so may have disastrous consequences for future generations (FIG, 2006). This includes polishing the management system, particularly the governance of marine space administrative to support marine rights. Sutherland and Nichols (2006) said that the oceans provide an opportunity to not make the same mistakes we have made in land resource management and land information systems. Marine space administration and management can help to improve our governance and information systems on coastal and marine areas. This unresolved problem has led to the lack of a concerted effort in the existing management in the marine space and the quality of sustainable marine space administration is indirectly being affected. From the perspective of management, Malaysia has many institutions that manage and administering the marine environment. However, the developing of institutional framework is still uncertain with ambiguities, conflicts and overlapping on administration and management models due to the bill of act. This paper explores the contributing elements of the Malaysia marine space administration issues towards sustainable marine space administration.
