Mo’omomi Community-Based Subsistence Fishing Area

Mo’omomi Community-Based Subsistence Fishing Area


Molokai , Hawaii


The Kohala Center

The Kohala Center conducted an HIA of a pending decision by the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources to designate the Mo’omomi fishery area on the north shore of Molokai as a Community-Based Subsistence Fishing Area, which would allow for co-management of the fishery by the state and local communities.

The HIA examined how proposed changes to the fishery management policy could affect health through impacts on self-determination and control of resources, traditional marine resource management and transmission of ancestral knowledge for family and community subsistence, and commercial fish sales and income.
