Students and researchers at Oceanic Institute of Hawaii Pacific University (OI) have opportunities to learn about and tackle marine science issues of global importance through in-depth, hands-on experiences.

Research Associate and HPU Marine Science Graduate Student Spencer Davis has a passion for marine aquaculture and recently secured grant funding to culture kūmū, the endemic Hawaiian whitesaddle goatfish. He works with expert faculty, like Dr. Chatham “Chad” Callan, Director of the Finfish Department at OI. Their research could pave the way for large scale production of the fish for fisheries restoration and commercial markets.
