In many recent opinions, the heritage of the Hawaiian culture holds a key to the future of mankind - the Hawaiian fishpond (photo right). No other form of ocean fish cultivation provides for more mouths with all the valuable nutrition which naturally comes from ocean life. Modern cultivation methods are proving themselves to be polluting the fish stock with chemicals which over time harm the human body from regular consumption.

"Hawai'i is not just a beautiful place. The people who live

on these islands must endure just as we all do.

Yet visitors often times have an idealistic view of Hawai'i which contrasts to the values that these citizens actually share. Not all, but most of the family values I observed here are much more conducive to healthy child rearing than what I've observed elsewhere in the U.S."

"Also, after living there for as long as I did, conserving water is second nature to me - I hope I can share that habit with other parts of the world" - mikey
