For generations the coral reefs and bays of Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park on the western shore of Hawai‘i Island have been and continue to be, used for fishing and traditional aquaculture. The park protects cultural legacies such as two fishponds and a fish trap built by Hawaiians many generations ago. Brackish water ecosystems called anchialine pools dot the lava fields, and coral reefs lie just off the shoreline.
