Ahupuaʻa, giclee print with hand painted acrylic enhancement by Carol Araki Wyban
The ahupua’a is an ancient mountain to sea management system. Fishponds were developed along the watercourse and into the ocean. This ahupuaʻa depicts four basic fishponds and one fish trap.

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.
