WPRFMC's Moanalua High School Summer Fisheries Course

June 11, 2013

The annual Moanalua High School Summer Fisheries Course sponsored by the Western Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Council is in session this year. This course seeks to expose and encourage our local kids to engage in our local fisheries in some way. The summer course is hands-on in many respects but also relies heavily on guest lecturers from the industry and government subject matter experts. The students learn many different skills and the workings of fisheries science and management. The Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center staff provides expertise in many subjects. The BCH project does a presentation every year on the use of barbless circle hooks and on fisheries-dependent monitoring and data.
