Climate Change in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands & Lobster Fishery, 1977-97

December 8, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Virtual

Michael Markrich, author of economic and historical studies, will discuss his recent publication connecting climate change and the lobster fishery in the Hawaiian waters. Significant changes in current movement, deep ocean mixing and plankton growth and variety affected lobster catch rates and protected species. Those included sea birds and monk seals.

Please join us for consideration of the environmental, zoological, economic and social affects of these developments, and how various organizations responded to them.
