Maui Navigation Team Nominations Extended

NOMINATION PROCESS EXTENDED FOR MAUI NAVIGATION TEAM.

Maui residents have the opportunity to have their voices heard to help ensure healthy reefs and abundant resources for years to come. The DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) is extending the deadline for the nomination process for its Maui Navigation team. The Navigation team, consisting of approximately 20 representatives from the Valley Isle, will work with DAR to identify priorities for marine resources and propose a management plan for Maui’s nearshore waters. The proposal will be shared with the Maui community for feedback before being submitted and reviewed for formal rulemaking. DAR’s Holomua initiative aims to ensure healthy reefs and abundant resources for future generations. Today, we see that the fish, coral, and other resources that are central to our livelihoods, culture, health, and island lifestyle are not as healthy and abundant as they once were. This initiative will be working closely with communities from each island to develop marine resource management solutions that support sustainable fishing practices. The initiative is a component of the broader Sustainable Hawai‘i Initiative. The Holomua community planning process kicked-off with a pilot on Maui in October 2022 with three, interactive, facilitated informational and knowledge sharing sessions. Those interested have until December 31 to apply. Check out https://dlnr.hawaii.gov/holomua/maui/ for more information.

What is the Holomua Community-Based Planning Process?

The Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) launched Holomua Marine 30×30 as a way to work with communities to effectively manage our nearshore marine resources around each main Hawaiian island to ensure that our local resources are available and plentiful today and for future generations. This is a new community-based planning approach, engaging island by island, that ensures local knowledge is guiding marine resource management planning at every step in the process. This process will be rolled out to each island over the next few years.

STEP 1: Local communities talk story with each other

STEP 2: Each island’s Navigation Team drafts management priorities and a management plan for their nearshore marine resources

STEP 3: Each Island’s Navigation Team shares their ideas with the community

STEP 4: Each island’s Navigation Team revises ideas based on community feedback

STEP 5: DAR prepares for statewide public scoping of the island Navigation Team’s proposal
