Western Pacific Sub-commission (WESTPAC) of Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) has launched a multinational cooperative project entitled ‘DNA Taxonomy and Recruitment Monitoring of the Coral Reef Marine Organisms (DRMREEF)’in 2013. Its objectives are to enhance national and regional capacity for species identification with genetic markers, to build a common inventory of coral reef organisms for assessment of their regional scale distribution, and to monitor recruitment of their larvae and fries. Seven countries including Republic of Korea, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam have participated in the project and contributed building the common database called WESTPAC Marine Biodiversity Portal (WMBP, westpac/). Each data set for a specimen consists of taxonomy, morphological description, photograph, collection time and place, DNA barcode, and specimen depository. Currently, WMBP contains information on more than 2,500 specimens of 1,410 species, 428 specimens of which also present DNA barcode sequence information. The 428 registered species include 22 species of Sponge, 247 Cnidaria, 1 Mysozoa, 41 Annelida,383 Mollusca, 113 Arthropoda, 131 Echinodermata, and 472 Chordata. This collated information on coral reef organisms from the seven WESTPAC countries will help understand not only the coral reef marine biodiversity, but also their regional
