“Nuisance” Species andNatural Resource Management

A Hawaiian Perspective

Dr. Isabella A. Abbott


From mountains

to the sea

Volcanic islands are a continuum of habitats


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


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.


Formed via volcanic action,

lava flows lay foundation for spectacular oceanic islands.


A Restored Hawaiian Fishpond


Isolating mechanisms abound

Deep valleys

Deep channels


Hawaii’s isolation is global

Greatest distance away from any land mass


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


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
