NOAA Webinar: Following ‘Ō‘io: The Life of Hawaiian Bonefishes

May 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Keith Kamikawa, NOAA
Sponsored by: NOAA

With Keith Kamikawa, NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office in Honolulu, HI It’s easy to follow friends and family who are important to us through social media. But there is no Facebook for fish. So how do we keep track of fish species that are important to our fisheries? Hawai‘i is home to two species of bonefish, including one found nowhere else in the world. Let’s take a look at ‘ō‘io (bonefishes) in Hawai‘i, a favorite catch for local anglers, and follow them throughout their lives. By building their life history “profile,” we can learn how to fish sustainably so that the next generation can enjoy a future where fishing traditions―and fish―thrive. The webinar will last about 45-60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward. (Grades 2-6 but all ages will enjoy).
