Marine Conservation Biology in Hawaii

Oahu (Tues., 1/20/09): Hawaiian Longline Fishing and the Papahānaumokuākea National Monument – w/video
by -- January 23rd, 2009

After our exciting trip to the fish market we chatted with Sean Martin, a fisherman and boat owner in the Hawaiian longline tuna and swordfish fishery. We then visited NOAA’s office to learn all about the Papahānaumokuākea National Monument, where we’ll be heading tomorrow to visit Midway Atoll!

    Do you think that overfishing is evident in Hawaii?

    When I was out at the fishing docks on the coast here, I noticed a lot of people do worry about the limited amount of fish that are out there.

    Anyway that was a nice Video, Thank you!

    Looks like exactly the same type of equipment used by long liners here in Australia, biggest problem with long lining is it kills nearly everything that is hooked including turtles and birds.

    Great video. This makes me want to move to Hawaii and figure out how to make a living as a fisherman. I’m stuck ice fishing most of the time. Check out my pictures at I’d rather switch you places.

    Overfishing is evident… thank goodness their still abundance of fish there… but they don’t have to wait for that devastating moment to arrive if they don’t do their part in conserving marine life.
