Ever wonder what fish are really doing in the water? John Hoover will give a special presentation on “Hawai‘i’s Reef Fishes” at Volcano Art Center on Thursday, April 27 from 7pm – pm at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus.

Hawaii’s reef fish don’t just hang around the reef waiting for something to happen. Like most other animals — and humans — they are busy most of the time taking care of the big three: Food, Security, and Reproduction. Each would make a fascinating topic in its own right, but perhaps the most fun to explore is reproduction. Fish engage in a wonderful and surprising variety of strategies and behaviors to ensure their continued survival. John Hoover, author of several best-selling field guides to Hawaiian marine fish and invertebrates, will explain how they do it and show some of his many underwater photos taken over 30 years of diving and snorkeling on Hawaiian coral reefs.

This evening is part of a once-a-month Thursday night series at the Volcano Art Center, focusing on art, Hawaiian culture and our environment.  The series is intended to inspire, enhance your appreciation of art and life experience, while fostering community connections.

The Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus is located at 19-4074 Old Volcano Road in Volcano Village.  This presentation is free, however donations are always welcome!
