Moi, giclee print by Carol Araki Wyban.
Moi or threadfin were reserved exclusively for the royalty. They were uncommon in fishponds and in the ocean. They are predators that feed on smaller fish.

This giclee print is part of the collection of Fish Common to Lokoea:
All fishponds have a complex ecosystem. These are just a few of the fish grown in Lokoea. We ate heartily of all the fish, crab, and shrimp, except for ʻoʻopu, which are sacred to Volcano goddess Pele.
