Miloli’i ‘Ōpelu Project…

The Miloliʻi ʻŌpelu Project is a two year program held in the last fishing village in the State of Hawaiʻi, Miloliʻi. Situated on the isolated, rural and arrid coastal plain of South Kona on Hawaiʻi Island, the fishing village of Miloliʻi remains the most traditional native hawaiian community in the Hawaiian Islands. For centuries Miloliʻi has been known as having an iconic and abundant supply of ʻŌpelu (Mackerel Scad) in its nearshore fishery. Utilizing an innovative method of fishing which blends modern science and the understanding of ocean currents and fish life cycle patterns as well as traditional hawaiian techniques has sustained this fishing village for the last century.
