“Nuisance” Species andNatural Resource Management

A Hawaiian Perspective

Dr. Isabella A. Abbott


From mountains

to the sea

Volcanic islands are a continuum of habitats



Ahupua’a coastal zone.stretch from mauka(mountain) - makai(ocean)

Land – ocean tenure based on

relationships and resources

Stewardship that built a resilient society

Land and coastal processes are linked.


Formed via volcanic action, coastal zone.

lava flows lay foundation for spectacular oceanic islands.



Isolating mechanisms abound coastal zone.

Deep valleys

Deep channels


Hawaii’s isolation is global coastal zone.

Greatest distance away from any land mass


Threats to native aquatic species coastal zone.

Non-indigenous introductions

unintentional /intentional

Changes in land use practices

Loss of ecosystem quality–

deterioration & poor water

Ballast water

targeted species collections

Mechanical impacts


Even in the ocean, some Hawaiian species are found no where else – they are endemic.

25 % of corals

25 % of algae

25 % of shallow water fish

32 % of shallow water invertebrates

Only on our reefs
