HAW: Fish ID Seminar and Snorkel with Malama Pupukea Waimea

Event Type: Seminars
Region: Hawaii (HAW)

As a new REEF Field Station, we're excited to offer our very first Fish ID Training Seminar at Shark's Cove/Pupukea Beach Park as part of the Great Annual Fish Count! During this FREE training class hosted by Malama Pupukea Waimea, you will learn the names of Hawaii's common reef fishes and how to conduct REEF surveys. After the training seminar, participants will have the opportunity to work in a team to conduct a 30-minute REEF Survey to record the different species and number of each fish observed. Anyone wishing to participate inthe snorkel survey should be a strong swimmer, competent snorkeler, and have his/her own mask, snorkel, and fins. The snorkel survey will involve identifying, counting and recording fish observed in the Pupukea Marine Life Conservation District at Shark's Cove. After the snorkel, we'll gather back on shore to identify any unknown fish and share sightings of cool marine critters.

Registration Instructions:
If you would like to join us, please RSVP at jennifer@pupukeawaimea.org so we can provide you with additional details in advance of the survey and so we can notify you if the event is cancelled or postponed on short notice due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. If the ocean conditions are poor or dangerous, we will only run the first identification class and cancel the snorkel survey.
