Click on image to download...

For generations the coral reefs and bays of Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park on the western shore of Hawai‘i Island have been and continue to be, used for fishing and traditional aquaculture. The park protects cultural legacies such as two fishponds and a fish trap built by Hawaiians many generations ago. Brackish water ecosystems called anchialine pools dot the lava fields, and coral reefs lie just off the shoreline.


Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
