NOAA Ships

The NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette, the Center's primary research vessel, is berthed at Ford Island in Pearl Harbor at the site of the NOAA Inouye Regional Center, along with other NOAA ships, including the Hi'ialakai and Ka'imimoana. The Sette and Hi'ialakai support most of the Center's fisheries and oceanographic research, ecological surveys, and other field activities in the central and western Pacific Ocean.
