  • Description:
    For more than a decade, the state of Hawaii and the nation have recognized the urgency to survey and assess the marine resources of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI). n 1979, it was decided by the heads of the tripartite agencies and the UH Sea Grant College Program that sufficient progress had been made to convene a symposium to interchange research results and ideas and to incorporate this information in planning the remaining two years of research. The agency heads who served as members of the steering committee to organize the symposium are Mr. Richard Shomura, Southwest Fisheries Center, Honolulu Laboratory of NMFS; Mr. Kenji Ego, Hawaii Division of Fish and Game; Mr. Dale Coggeshall, Pacific Islands branch of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and Dr. Jack Davidson, University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program. Dr. Richard Grigg of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology at the University of Hawaii, and project leader of the Sea Grant Northwestern Hawaiian Islands research program, chaired the committee and was the convenor and moderator of the symposium. The symposium was held on April 24-25, 1980 at the Campus Center Ballroom on the Manoa campus of the University of Hawaii. Twenty-​seven papers were presented at the symposium. Authors were asked to give the original objectives of their studies, describe progress to date, and address future research needs. The symposium was attended by 151 invited representatives​ of governmental agencies, industry, the University of Hawaii, environmental groups, and the private sector. The proceedings of the symposium contains the manuscripts, the welcoming address of Governor George Ariyoshi; the keynote address by John P. Craven, dean of Marine Programs at the University of Hawaii; an introductory paper by Richard Shomura; a luncheon address by Dr. John Munro, dean of the Faculty of Science of the University of Papua New Guinea; a summary of the Panel Discussion, and Concluding Remarks by John P.
