Molokai: South CoastAs many as 60 ancient fish ponds dotted the shallow southern coast of Molokia. Most of these ponds are thought to date back to the 13th Century. They are a tribute to sophisticated aquaculture.
The semi-circular walls of the ponds were made from lava boulders and coral which would keep the fish inside while allowing the sea water to ebb in and out. The fish from these ponds were only eaten by the royal Hawaiian chiefs.
