According to Dr Nur Leena Wong who is a researcher from the International Institute of Aquaculture and Aquatic Science Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), a new species of oyster that is only found in the mouth of the Muar River and not found anywhere else in the world has been discovered and named Crassostrea (Magallana) saidii. The oyster was named Crassostrea (Magallana) Saidii in recognition of the efforts of Mr Md Saidi Bin Mohamed to promote research and conservation of the oyster species. According to him, the results of the research collaboration between Queen's University Belfast and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) have confirmed his identity through deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) testing.
