It was until rescently that the country has started some initiatives to identify and manage her maritime and underwater heritage assets. This is done by the established Maritime and Underwater Cultural Heritage (MUCH) program which officially started in february 2009. Among others, the program initiatives has resulted to documenting some of the country‟s maritime and underwater cultural heritage assets as well as establishing a strong team from various Government‟s departments and institutions.
