Hawaii fish photos page

As mentioned in the podcast, Rus and Kelly took all of these pictures, but unless otherwise noted, they were taken at the Waikiki Aquarium or at Sea Life Park. Click to enlarge images.

Here’s Hawaii’s state fish, the humuhumunukunukuapua’a, which means, “triggerfish with a nose like a pig.”

Here’s the fish with an even LONGER name, the lauwiliwilinukunukuoi’oi, which means “long-nosed butterflyfish”:

Here’s one of Kelly’s favorites, the graceful Moorish Idol:

Here I am ( Rus ) snorkeling–this was not at a public aquarium. You can see that the camera really isn’t suited to taking excellent fish pictures, although there are a couple of wrasses near my fins.

Here is a Hawaiian cleaner wrasse, a yellow tank, with a threadfin butterflyfish on the lower left. I think the other fish at a right angle to the camera is an ornate butterfly, but it’s hard to tell.

Here are some honu–Hawaiian green sea turtles. These pics were of wild sea turtles, not at an aquarium.
