TCBES Natural and Cultural Resource Seminar Series

Location: Wentworth, Room 1

TITLE: Unfiltered: Aquatic Resource Management in Hawaii

SPEAKER: Troy Sakihara, Division of Aquatic Resources

ABSTRACT: The Division of Aquatic Resources is a state government agency that is tasked with managing and conserving Hawai‘i's living aquatic resources from mauka to makai. While DAR's mission is seemingly straight forward, the physical vastness and complexity of aquatic resource management begets challenges, frustration and a variety of hurdles that need to be faced. Nonetheless, maintaining confidence in your efforts upholding scientific and professional integrity, and remembering the "why" that's driving your educational and professional pursuits should transcend any difficulties inherent in any field of natural resource management.

This presentation will candidly share the professional experiences and perspectives of a local boy turned aquatic biologist working for the State of Hawai‘i.
