The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency has now detained the captain and the engineer of the cargo ship for their alleged actions. Datuk Tey Kok Kiew, the chairman of Housing, Local Government and Environment Committee explained that coal dust could be devastating for the marine ecosystem there. He said told The Star,

“Coal dust pollution could harm the underwater flora and fauna since oxidising coal particles reduce oxygen available for marine life such as mussles and crustaceans.”
