    Why big fishes live in this area?

    Komodo is the only equatorial region on the planet where two oceans, the Pacific and the Indian, meet and exchange marine life, generating strong tidal flow running North and South through the park bringing much-needed nutrients. These currents help dispersing plankton between the two oceans and many planktons settle in the Komodo Area and thereby causing a very high-biodiversity of corals, reef fish, invertebrates, and pelagic. This Oceanic hub attracts bigger marine life and mammals, some of which also use the channels as natural migratory highways.
