I am a Biologist for the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center/National Marine Fisheries Service/NOAA in Honolulu, Hawaii. I have conducted or been involved in studies to mesophotic depths for: Hawaiian Monk Seal forage base (50-70 meters), fish communities on the banks in the NWHI (30-40 meters), and black coral fish communities of the Au Au channel (40-75 meters). My present interest is in reef fish associated with mesophotic ecosystems in the Hawaiian Archipelago (40-150 meters). I am the Unit Dive Supervisor for NMFS/NOAA in Hawaii and am a recreational technical SCUBA and rebreather instructor.
