Hawaii Education Activities

Unit scientists at the Hawai'i Unit teach courses at the graduate level that are responsive to the needs of graduate students. While our classes currently are primarily in support of the University of Hawai'i-Hilo's graduate program in Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science, plans are being made to expand our offerings to the University of Hawai'i system at large. The Unit also supports the Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science Program through research and mentoring.

Courses Taught

  • Fisheries Ecology Lectures and discussions will be used to provide an interactive exploration of the ecology of fishes related to management and conservation. Topics include: foraging and predator-prey theory, reproduction and early life-history, habitat selection and niche theory, competition, fish biodiversity, and response to anthropogenic climate change. (Tim Grabowski 2017)
  • Field Ichthyology Distribution, life-history, and habitat associations of Texas freshwater, estuarine, and marine fishes. Field identification and collection methods emphasized. Field trips required. (Tim Grabowski 2015)

Training Offered

  • “Everything You Wanted to Know About Fishes but Were Afraid to Ask"

    A 4.5 day workshop designed to provide hatchery workers and technicians with high school diplomas or partial undergraduate degrees with a formal introduction to fish biology, ecology, and phylogenetics. Workshop was developed and conducted with funding provided by the USGS Technical Training in Support of Native American Relations (TESNAR) program. Workshop was held for the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho at Bonners Ferry, ID.
