      Save Maui’s Mantas from Fishing Line Entanglement

      Support the Save Maui’s Mantas Campaign lead by MNMRC representative Dr. Mark Deakos and partner organization HAMER (Hawaii Association for Marine Education and Research). www.SaveMauisMantas.org

      The Problem: 1 of 10 manta rays observed at Olowalu suffers from an amputated or severely damaged cephalic fin caused from entanglement in fishing line. The cephalic fin is an important appendage used to guide water and plankton into their mouths when feeding.

      The Solution: Acoustic and Satellite Tags to track manta movement to identify and target specific areas of high entanglement risk.
