1 Maunalua Bay Moon & Tide Calendar 4 Fish Spawning Guide To Support Sustainable Fishing Practices Photo: Brian Neilson

2 Aloha mai! This calendar was developed through a partnership between the University of Hawai i Mānoa Fisheries Ecology Research Lab, Conservation International s Hawaii Fish Trust, Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, Mālama Maunalua, and the Maunalua community to raise awareness on the makai and mauka connections and to share important pono (sustainable and respectful) fishing practices for the area. Traditional Hawaiian knowledge utilized the lunar, seasonal, and tidal cycles to predict the timing of spawning of reef fishes and other critical times when protection was needed. Today, we are relearning the spawning seasons and other important cycles of our reef fishes. We are working towards a community awareness of the natural environmental cycles in the bay and how our valuable resources are impacted by our activities during these cycles. Terms Used In The Calendar The intent of this calendar is not to impose fishing regulations but rather to highlight the seasonal spawning cycles and suggest minimum sizes that should be harvested to ensure that fish will be available in the future. These recommended pono harvest practices are summarized each month under Suggested Limited Harvest. In each month the State seasonal fishing regulations are summarized with additional information available at the DAR website: hawaii.gov/dlnr/dar/index/html. Closed Season Closed seasons refer to the current seasonal regulations administered by the State of Hawaii through the Department of Land and Natural Resources. Rules can be found at: gov/dlnr/dar/rules/ch95.pdf Limited Harvest Additional restrictions on harvest are administered by the State of Hawaii. These restrictions regulate gear (nets, spear, etc), number and size of fish, or total weight. Suggested Limited Harvest Limited harvest or no harvest is recommended during these periods to protect spawning of fishes in Maunalua Bay. These periods are based upon fisherman observations, local knowledge, and gonad data from Maunalua Bay. The bar below will appear for every month, and it displays both the Hawaiian months (Malo) and Gregorian months. The Hawaiian months coincide with the phases of the moon. Each month begins with the moon phase named Hilo (new moon) and finishes with Mauli or Muku. The Gregorian months are the standard months that are most widely accepted and used internationally.

3 Data Presented in this Calendar Daily tide and moon data are provided in this calendar. All predictions are for Maunalua Bay. Hawaiian Moon Phases Many calendars today are based upon the synodic month, which is the average orbital period of the moon. A synodic month is 9.5 days. However, there are moon phases. In this calendar, the moon phase Hilo was aligned with the astronomical new moon according to the US Naval Observatory. The days and times are based on Universal Time which was converted to Hawai i Standard Time for this calendar. The rest of the moon phases are laid out accordingly. Each moon phase has its own name (Malo). The moon phase Muku is omitted for months where the next new moon occurs 9 days after the current months new moon. Moon Visibility The visibility of the moon over Maunalua Bay is provided by the U.S. Naval Observatory website. The rise and set times of each moon phase are represented by the beginning and the end of each bar. Maunalua Tide The tides presented in this calendar are the subordinate tide predictions for Maunalua Bay, these predictions are based on the harmonic predictions for Hanauma Bay. Harmonic predictions are based on data from stations at the site while subordinate predictions are adjusted times based on data from a nearby data station. This line indicates the moon visibility over Maunalua Day of the month. - Tide height in feet. Hawaiian name of the moon phase.

4 Monitoring Spawning Seasons We work with local fisherman to identify peak spawning times of reef fishes. We collect gonads (eggs or sperm) from harvested reef fishes and analyze the gonads at UH Mānoa. We look at the egg size, development stage, and hormone levels to determine when spawning is occurring and correlate these spawning events to seasonal and lunar cycles.

8 Help Huki to Restore the Bay! Invasive alien algae (IAA) (e.g., Acanthophora spicifera, Avrainvillea amadelpha) smother the nearshore reef flat and hinder the growth of native marine plants (e.g., Nenue sea grass) and fish populations. Closed Season Ama ama (Mullet) Limited Harvest Moi (5 per day) Suggested Limited Harvest Āholehole Manini Before Removal As a community, we can control the growth and the spread of IAA in Maunalua Bay by removing it by hand. To date, community volunteers have manually removed over million pounds of IAA from Paiko Beach. The pulled IAA is then disposed of locally at Otsuji Farms, where it is used as fertilizer. After Removal Ō io Kole How to get involved Go to Mālama Maunalua s website and sign up for the monthly newsletter. The newsletter will give you dates for the 4 community events Mālama Maunalua hosts every month, and are all open to the public.

12 Harvest Wisely To Ensure Future Catches! During peak spawning season, manini spawn around the new (Muku) and the full (Hoku) moons. Manini graze on algae on the reef helping to keep the balance between coral and algae. It is important to maintain large herbivore populations to ensure that coral does not get smothered with algae.

20 Are you prepared for the rain? Taking care of our Bay begins on land. Steps to reduce runoff pollution from entering the Bay:.Do not dump waste water, especially oil and chemicals, into the storm drains. These drains empty directly into the Bay untreated..reduce pesticide and fertilizer use on your lawn and gardens, especially during the rainy season..plant a rain garden. A rain garden is low-lying area that captures run-off from nearby impervious surfaces such as parking lots and rooftops, and allows water to soak into the ground while filtering pollutants (such as oil, grease). Plant roots and microorganisms in the soil capture and break down pollutants, allowing the now cleaned water to recharge groundwater aquifers.
