The Role of Aquaculture in Addressing Food Security in Hawaiʻi

Hawai’i has a long history of aquaculture. Loko i’a, or fishponds, sustained native Hawaiians through times when wild fish and birds were not easily captured. Today, aquaculture plays a larger role in the diet of all Hawaiians. Learn how the growth of aquaculture, both on land and in the open ocean, will ensure a sustainable source of high-quality, safe, native fish. We will hear from Dick Jones, the CEO of Blue Ocean Mariculture, located off the coast of Kona, Hawai’i and the only open-ocean finfish aquaculture company in the United States.
