1523 thumbnail picture
The video and still photographs collected by the towed optical assessment device (TOAD), the camera sled shown being deployed from a ship, can be analyzed to help map the character of benthic habitats.
1524 thumbnail picture
A SeaBED-class AUV designed by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and jointly owned and operated by NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center and the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC). It effectively samples across a wide range of habitat types at depths of 20 to 2,000 meters. It autonomously follows the seabed collecting high-resolution imagery at about 0.5 knots.

Jesse Guerrero fights a fish with the NOAA Ship OSCAR ELTON SETTE in the background. Jesse provided lots of experience and local knowledge to the NOAA groundfish collection team. His bait presentation had a different style than anyone else's; he was very effective.
1536 thumbnail picture
Local Fisherman Greg Camacho sets up his rig. The fishermen used thick monofilament main lines with up to 11 hooks on branch leaders. Greg had all of his hooks lined up in a piece of foam ready to be baited.
1537 thumbnail picture
Jesse Guerrero holds up an adult Onaga before re-dropping his rig. Once the team found the target fish they would focus hard on replicating the drifts and bait presentation in hopes to collect more before the current changed, the fish stopped biting or it was time to cease operations and return to the ship.

Tony Flores shows the impressive size of this eight-banded grouper. He uses tape on his index fingers to prevent the thin, strong braided line from cutting into his hand when the big fish bite and pull unexpectedly.
1539 thumbnail picture
This Grouper (non-Target) ate a Gindai (non -Target) and the 125 pound fish got hooked in the lip by a small circle hook. Once on-board the eight-Banded Grouper completely filled the cooler and the team had to halt sampling and bring it back to the ship to be processed before resuming.

Roi were introduced to Oahu in 1956 from the Society Islands. It seems like the population of roi are on the rise similar to how the taape had their population boom decades ago. Perhaps it is now the roi population's turn to expand until it finds a sustainable level at which time its population be in synch with what the nearshore environment can handle.
