Hawaiian state fish (yes, a state fish). It is actually a reef trigger fish but the Hawaiian name is "Humuhumunukunukuapuaa". Of the many magnificent fish in Hawaiian waters, it seems a rather odd fish to choose as our state fish.
Needle fish, or called "aha" in Hawaiian. They can grow up to 3 feet in length and can be a danger to fishermen at night as they are attracted to light. I remember a search and rescue case when I was in Coast Guard where a fisherman was struck in the eye at night when leaning over the boat with spot light on his head.
The War Memorial natatorium which has badly deteriorated and is no longer use and closed. I wish the city would make a decision to either tear it down or restore it, but both will cost a lot of dollars and I doubt they will take any action until a tourist is hurt and sues the city. That is the normal way of business in the Islands.
Entrance to the Waikiki aquarium, which is quite small and doesn't have a lot of exhibits. Still, it was hot and a nice respite from the hot sun and an opportunity to cool down and rest before walking back to other end of Waikiki.
The Hawaiian Monk Seal. An endangered marine mammal which can only be found in the waters of Hawaii from Midway Islands to the Island of Hawaii. Nearly wiped out by angry fishermen and a favorite food of the Tiger Shark, the Monk Seal is protected under Federal and State laws.
