Friday, November 6, 2020
4 – 5 pm
Most scuba divers rarely venture below 100 feet, and yet the coral reef habitat extends as deep as 500 feet. These deep reefs, known as the coral-reef “twilight zone” of Papahānaumokuākea are virtually unexplored and are potentially a treasure trove of unique Hawaiian biodiversity.

Dr. Randall Kosaki has an M.S. and a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Hawai’i and a background is in the behavioral ecology of coral reef fishes and has broad interests in the taxonomy and biogeography of Pacific coral reef fishes.
