2017 West Hawaii Integrated Ecosystem Assessment 

The coastal ocean of West Hawai'i Island is a biologically diverse and productive ecosystem. The region is also important to fisheries and tourism. The West Hawaii'i Integrated Ecosystem Assessment (IEA) research team returns to the region and investigates this dynamic marine ecosystem and its underlying oceanography.


2017 Pacific Reef Assessment Monitoring Program Survey Mission

The Pacific Island Fisheries Science Centers’ Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (PIFSC CREP) has been surveying coral reef ecosystems in the Pacific since the early 2000s. We collect data to assess how coral reefs vary over space and through time. We do this to inform the management of these stunning and important ecosystems, which are packed full of biodiversity and that provide coastal protections, food and livelihoods to millions of people worldwide. During this 88-day expedition, we will survey the islands of Jarvis, Howland, Baker and Wake, all part of the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument. We will then traverse the Marianas Archipelago working our way up the chain from the populated islands in the south (Guam, Rota, Saipan) to the remote locations in the north.
