Niegel Rozet, a marine science junior at Hilo, received invitations to make presentations at two international events on the research he conducted in his marine science class, MARE 488 Kuula: Integrated Science.

Rozet partnered with anthropology major Iolani Kauhane to study the ecology of the manini fish (Hawaiian Convict Tang), drawing from Native Hawaiian celestial time-keeping techniques and quantitative ecology.

He presented his findings at the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council Workshop in Saipan, CNMI. Rozet will later make a presentation to the Annual Meeting of the Society of Wetland Scientists in Prague in July.
