“Nuisance” Species andNatural Resource Management

A Hawaiian Perspective

Dr. Isabella A. Abbott


Nuisance species and natural resource management

From mountains

to the sea

Volcanic islands are a continuum of habitats


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Stream flow links this entire state’s land mass to the coastal zone.


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Ahupua’astretch 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.


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Formed via volcanic action,

lava flows lay foundation for spectacular oceanic islands.

Isolating mechanisms abound

Deep valleys

Deep channels


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Hawaii’s isolation is global

Greatest distance away from any land mass


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Threats to native aquatic species

Non-indigenous introductions

unintentional /intentional

Changes in land use practices

Loss of ecosystem quality–

deterioration & poor water

Ballast water

targeted species collections

Mechanical impacts


Nuisance species and natural resource management

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

Pono

In perfect order; true condition

Mālama i ka āina

The land gave them life and protection.


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Mālama i ka wai

Streams gave them water for their families and crops.


Nuisance species and natural resource management

Mālama i ke kai

The ocean delivered their ancestors to these islands and gave them food.
