Event description

Description

Join us in the Waikīkī Aquarium classroom for a talk by Dr. Ryan Okano of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) on Wednesday, September 18th at 3:30pm.

Historically in Hawai‘i, limu were a consistent facet of a simplistic yet nutritious diet. In Hawai‘i's modern multicultural context people have continued to use limu in a similar fashion to their root cultures. Granted that limu still holds a place of importance in modern Hawai‘i, many believe that it is underutilized and thus underappreciated. Therefore, the Division of Aquatic Resources would like to make a concerted effort to broaden the utilization and appreciation of limu in Hawai‘i, via educational and restoration efforts.
