  • Description:
    "Coral reef fisheries are an integral part of life in Hawai'i, providing resources such as food, recreation, commerce, and culture. However, there is evidence from both researchers and resource users that coral reef fisheries have been steadily declining over the past century, a trend that threatens both the health of our nearshore marine environment and the well-being of present and future generations of our people. Urgent action is needed to address the increasing pressures and impacts on coral reefs in order to ensure sustainability of our fisheries and our lifestyle in the Hawaiian Islands. One action taken by the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force, in collaboration with the State of Hawaii, was to create the Fisheries Local Action Strategy for Hawai'i (FLASH). The purpose of the FLASH is to develop viable fisheries management solutions, enhance public understanding of Hawai'i's coral reefs and facilitate public involvement in coral reef stewardship and supports projects by promoting collaboration, outreach, and engagement amongst stakeholders, offering technical support, and identifying funding opportunities"--Introduction.
