Join us on our inaugural Hawaiian Fish Ponds Tour, Sat. May 5th

Hawaiian Fish Ponds Tour

Early Hawaiians were engaged in fish farming or mariculture practices over a thousand years in Hawaii. One of the largest and oldest inland  fishpond, the Kawainui Loko I’a was located in Kailua.  Other types of fish ponds that were located along the shoreline with a wall enclosure (kuapa) and sluice grates (makaha) to control the movement of fish and tides can still be found in Kaneohe Bay.

Join ‘Ahahui Malama I Ka Lokahi and the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club on Saturday May 5th from 8:30am to 12:30 pm to visit the ancient fishponds at Waikalua Loko Kuapa with brief overlook stops to Nu’upia Loko and Kawainui Loko I’a.  Make your reservations by calling ‘Ahahui at 263-8008. There will be a $10 donation requested. We will meet at Ulupo Heiau at 8:15am and carpool to the various sites. Bring sun protection, water, snack and camera.

Also, at the Waikalua Loko Fishpond, we will be taking the opportunity to participate in the 350.org world wide event to Connect the DOTS on Global Warming.  We will be holding a sign (bed sheet) with a painted Red Dot to indicate the rise of sea level within 50 years that will impact this site.  A digital photo of this scene will be added to the thousands of photos being taking on this day throughout the world.
