  • Hawaiian cleaner wrasse cleans 14 species of fish in 10 minutes. from HAMER on Vimeo.

    A Hawaiian cleaner wrasse finally appears after a 10 month absence. Over 14 species of fish visit the cleaning station within 10 minutes.



  • In 2017, in addition to our genetics study looking at the connectivity between the Maui and Big Island mantas (which is almost complete), we will be working collaboratively with Murdoch University on a comprehensive population trend analysis to understand if our manta ray population is growing or declining and how quickly. This is a critical step for effectively managing this population.

    Mahalo!



  • Meet “Slice”, an adult male manta that we see once every 4 years (2008, 2012 and November 5, 2016). Here we obtain his unique photo-identification and a size estimate using paired-laser photogrammetry (9.5 feet from wing tip to wing tip).
