Voice of the Sea "Kumuola Marine Science Education Center" Watch Party

February 11, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Virtual

Join the Voice of the Sea YouTube watch party, where you will have a chance to talk directly to the students and experts at the Kumuola Marine Science Education Center! In this episode, we are on the East side of Hawaiʻi Island as part of our series on loko iʻa (traditional Hawaiian fishponds). We visit the Kumuola Marine Science Education Center to learn about efforts to rehabilitate the Waiāhole and Kapalaho loko iʻa —located within the ‘ili kūpono of Honohononui, the ahupua‘a of Waiākea, and the moku of Hilo. Kumuola is working with haumāna (students) as well as field and industry experts to maximize the health of the Native Hawaiian mullet, ʻamaʻama, in their loko iʻa. We talk-story about the community involved with Kumuola, the history of the loko iʻa under their care (Waiāhole and Kapalaho), the work involved in rehabilitation, and the research that is aiding their process.
