The Misool Mission

Misool's conservation initiatives, including the Misool Marine Reserve, have blossomed over the years. The reserve has now grown to 300 hectares. That's roughly the size of all five boroughs of New York City combined. A salaried 000-person team of local rangers, many of whom are former shark fin fishermen, patrol the area using a fleet of five boats, and there is also radar monitoring to prevent fishing. The result has been an average increase in biomass in the reserve by 15% over a six-year period. There are 250 times more sharks on Misool's reef than ten years ago. There are significantly more manta rays as well.

Today, Misool is one of the most pristine reef systems left on Earth. According to a May 2017 assessment by marine biologist and coral reef ecologist Dr Mark Erdmann, Misool is “one of the few places in the universe where biodiversity is increasing rather than decreasing”. Erdmann also praised that "there is such a great biodiversity". This means that there is a greater number and greater diversity of fish, coral and molluscs on these reefs than anywhere else on earth.

When it comes to corals, a single football field-sized patch of Misool's reef has nearly five times as many coral species as the entire Caribbean Sea. The 1 species of reef fish found in the one million hectare Raja Ampat are three times more than the 564 different species observed in the entire 500 million hectares of the Caribbean. The relative density of fish species in Raja Ampat compared to the Caribbean is 680:200.

Some liveaboard pass in this area but they are so few that you will hardly notice them. If you want to experience this fantastic area, Misool Eco Resort is completely unique.
