During the Sanctuary's dedication ceremony, the entire community was invited to participate in a Native Hawaiian fish gathering activity known as a "hukilau." The Maui Sanctuary office sits in front of one of the last remaining Native Hawaiian fishponds in South Maui. Prior to the Sanctuary's official approval, many people from the fishing community feared the imposition of additional Sanctuary regulations. On the contrary, however, fishing is not regulated in the Sanctuary but rather encouraged and welcomed throughout its waters. (photo: Jeff Alexander)
