    About This Project

    Yellow tang are vital to Hawaii’s reef ecosystems, but wild populations have been drastically declining due to the aquarium trade. Aquaculture is a sustainable alternative to removing fish from the wild, but only a fraction of cultured yellow tang survive to adulthood. We suspect investigating the microbiome will provide key insights to this problem. Our goal is to increase the success of the Oceanic Institute's aquaculture program and reduce impact on wild yellow tang populations.
