  • Description:
    "In collaboration with Dr. Chris Bird of Texas A&M University, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) provided technical and logistical support to two Maui community groups in conducting intertidal 'opihi surveys in an effort to return this fishery to abundance. These coastal communities, referred to in this report as 'east Maui' and 'Kipahulu,' have windswept, rocky shorelines that provide ideal habitat for the prized 'opihi, an endemic Hawaiian limpet. Dr. Chris Bird of Texas A&M University is leading the three-year study designed to assess the effectiveness of the voluntary rest areas at both sites, including study design, quality control, training, and data analysis. TNC's Maui Marine Coordinator Roxie Sylva is coordinating teams of staff, researchers, community members, and volunteers to conduct the rapid assessment surveys. Between September 2014 and January 2016, rapid surveys have been conducted at each site three to four times"--Overview.
