Have a look at what some of our favourite clients have said about us and our business.
Maui' most advanced are located along the west bank. It is home to fish, seaweed and other invaders and is one of the richest marine life in the world. Hawaii's many years of experience with Hawaiian sea corals has been a fount of proud ness and appreciation for our state, as they play an important part in the culture of our country's tradition of knowing and living with families and making significant ecological, socioeconomic and ecological contribution.
The value of our coral cliffs is to educate and research, to protect our shores and shorelines from the erosional force of the sea and to sustain and nourish our family. The value of Hawaii's coastline in 2002 was valued at nearly $10 billion, with an approximate value of $364 million a year (Cesar and van Beukering, 2004).
Almost 85 per cent of this yearly value is accounted for by the tourist industry. In a 2011 poll, the observed value of Hawaiian warm sea creatures from US homes was measured, with US residents estimated to estimate the value of the reef at 33.57 billion US dollar (Bishop et al., 2011). The research shows us that Maui' s reef and fishing population is declining due to a mix of issues such as land-based contamination, reduced sea level, over-fishing, invertebrate seaweed, climatic and more.
It is a particularly important menace to the corals and an important factor in reducing our impact on our shore and keeping our corals as sound as possible so that they are better prepared for the increased ecological stresses associated with the changing world. Longterm figures from four near-shore marine locations Four locations on West Maui (Kahekili, Honolua Bay, Puamana and Olowalu) recorded a decrease in overall marine life from 36 per cent from 119954 to 23 per cent by 201209 (State of Hawaii, DLNR).
This is more than a third of our corals in only about 1517 years. Specifically, from 19953 to 201209, the amount of reef coverage off Kahekili (an area in Airport Beach in northern Kaanapali) fell by about 3316 per cent (from 55 per cent to 37 per cent). In Olowalu, a 23 per cent decline in the number of corals (from 43 per cent to 33 per cent) has been recorded during this area.
At Honolua Bay, over the same timeframe, sea levels fell by 7634 per cent (from 42 per cent in 1995 to 10 per cent in 2012). In Puamana (Hawaii state, DLNR) an increased rate of 3 per cent reef coverage in 1995 to 10 per cent in 2012 is well known. As our corals decrease, seaweed thrives - and that's not always good.
Seaweeds can stop the important sun light for the corals to grow and surpass living corals, which grow much more slowly than cod. Decrease in corals can be detrimental to the diet and habitat of freshwater species such as seaweed. Another noxious factor for living in it is the lack of fresh air in the aquarium waters due to the decomposition of seaweeds (Dailer et al., 2010).
Growing seaweed on our coral cliffs could be due to a mix of surplus fertiliser from wells such as fertiliser and pollutants, pesticides and more that are discharged into the sea. The site is full of information about the coral cliffs and what to do about them.
