Beautiful Fish of Hawaii

The underwater world in Hawaii is as beautiful as the rest of Hawaii. It's important to not only learn about this world but also to respect it. Don't touch the fish or coral and don't stand or hit the coral with your fins. The reefs are dying at alarming rates and much of it is due to human mistakes.
