Invasive roi in Hawaii topic of webinar
Maui Nui Marine Resource Council will host a free webinar at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday titled “Invasive roi in Hawaii: What should be done?”
Russell Sparks and Alan Friedlander will present recent scientific studies about the impact of roi on native reef fish.
“We’ve heard concerns about a recent increase in roi sightings in the reefs of ‘Ahihi-Kina’u Natural Area Reserve, and thought this would be a good time to bring in these scientists to meet with the community to talk about roi,” said Robin Newbold, co-founder and chair of Maui Nui Marine Resource Council. “It’s always good to start with the latest scientific facts as we work towards answers and solutions.”
This free Zoom webinar is part of Maui Nui Marine Resource Council’s monthly “Know Your Ocean” Speaker Series now being held via Zoom due to COVID-19.
