Rising Tide, original watercolor, colored pencil and ink on paper by Carol Araki Wyban.
Fishing with the Makaha at Lokoea Fishpond, we rise in the early morning with the winter high tide. There is a chill in the night air. Jim and I look makai, to the sea. The ocean rises up the estuary to enter through the screened gate at our feet. The water moves into the auwai kai channel between two gates of the makaha. the auwai kai is already filled with fish.

This giclee print is part of the Fishpond Technology: From Fishing to Fishponds.

Their tools were their intellect, their hands, rocks and trees. The following figures describe the basic technology of fishponds and how they took the leap from fishing to aquaculture.
