Greatfish Isle, also formatted as Great Fish Isle, is an island of the Great Sea in The Wind Waker. Once the location of a peaceful village of Hyruleans and Jabun, it is now a horrific wreck after being demolished by Ganondorf. Jabun fled the island and headed for Outset Island. Now, the only residents are a Traveling Merchant and the Korok Linder.
Despite its destruction, the island still holds two Pieces of Heart, and is one of the recurring destinations of the Ghost Ship. One of the Pieces of Heart can be found in a small indent by flying with the Deku Leaf directly northwest from the small spiral island chunk atop where the Korok rests. The other Heart Piece is given to Link from the Merchant in exchange of the Shop Guru Statue.
Scrapped Dungeon Theory
Greatfish Isle's German name, Ichthusk, comes from the Greek word, ἰχθύς, meaning "fish".
