Hanauma Bay Thursday Evening June 13 – Reducing Bycatch in the U.S. Tuna Industry by Dave Itano

Just a reminder! On Thursday evening June 13th, the UH Sea Grant Hanauma Bay Education Program continues its public outreach series at the City and County of Honolulu’s Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Thursday June 13,

Reducing Bycatch in the U.S. Tuna Industry

Dave Itano, Recreational Fisheries Specialist, NOAA/NMFS – Pacific Islands Regional Office

Dave Itano will discuss some of his work that took place onboard the Cape Finisterre last year in the western and central Pacific Ocean, where he was serving as the principal investigator on a bycatch project. Information and data collected may someday prove useful for avoiding areas of high bycatch or small sized tuna. To learn more attend the evening program next Thursday!

As always, these events begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evening in the theater at the Hanauma Bay Education Center.  Events are free and open to the public, with no charge for parking after 5:30 p.m.  We hope to see you on Thursday evening!  These programs are supported and funded by the City and County of Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation.
