According to world renown ichthyologists Indonesia possesses the world’s richest fish fauna. The Indonesian archipelago stretches in an east-west direction for approximately 5000 km (3100 miles) encompassing nearly 18,000 islands and a seemingly endless array of marine habitats. Moreover, the world’s highest reef fish total (1,111 species) for a single restricted locality was recorded at Maumere Bay on the island of Flores (Allen and Kuiter, unpublished).
