Biogeographic Assessment of the Main Hawaiian Islands (MHI)

In support of BOEM’s review of renewable energy leases and cable-right-of-way grants in federal waters, CSS compiled and visualized data showing the distribution of benthic habitats, fishes, sea turtles, marine mammals, and seabirds off the MHI. Products include a report describing marine biogeographic patterns around the MHI; spatial data layers and associated metadata; and an interactive web map to display project-related datasets. Our work established a baseline for assessing and monitoring potential environmental impacts from renewable energy projects.
