Fish ID Class | Wrasses and Parrotfish

Wrasses and parrotfish are some of the most ubiquitous fishes on any reef, and Hawai’i is no exception. Both of these groups of fishes can have very gaudy colors, and can be difficult to identify because of their dramatic changes in coloration as they mature. These groups are also well known for changing sex, most often from female to male, as they mature. Parrotfish are significant globally on tropical reefs as algae grazers, which helps maintain balance on the reef and room for new corals to grow.

In this talk, we will learn how to pick out the fishes in these groups, and become familiar with some of the specific species we have here in Hawai’i. We will learn their common names, and dip into their Hawaiian and scientific names. We will also discuss their behaviors and other interesting facts that will help expand your knowledge and appreciation of these diverse fishes.

Couple of tidbits:
1. The multi-tiered pricing is to make these sessions available to everyone. If you can afford to pay more, we believe the class is worth it and we appreciate that. If $19 is your rate, we STILL appreciate it and hope you learn a lot!
2. When you sign up for the course through Eventbrite, you will get a confirmation email that contains the link to the session at the bottom of the email.

Have a good look, because while it looks like gibberish, it IS there (working on fixing that with Eventbrite)
