Description:"The NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center's Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (CRED), Benthic Habitat Mapping Team conducted an 18-day mission to acousticaly and optically survey the seafloor around the island of Maui aboard the R/V AHI in support of benthic habitat mapping operations. Optical surveying with the TOAD camera sled system was limited to Kaanapali-Kahekili priority area desginated by the Hawaii Division of Aquatic Resources and NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program. The primary objective of multibeam surveying was to fill gaps in that same area and then to fill gaps in more exposed coastal areas around Maui"--Objectives.
