The Hilo Bay Research and Training Farm, a mariculture partnership based at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, works to develop shellfish farming with a host of community organizations. This research focuses on testing the feasibility of using bivalves and native limu to improve water quality, mitigate ocean acidification impacts, and encourage local economic development.
