A kuapā fishpond consists of a long rock wall that captures part of the sea and connects it to the land. this body of water that was once part of the ocean becomes a manageable resource to be stocked, managed and harvested. These ponds can range from an acre to several hundred acres in size. The large Loko Kuapā belonged to the Ali’i Chiefs and were not for use by commoners.
