the Hawaii Institute a marine biology at the University of Hawaii is a unique resource for the state and the scientific community our location allows for utilizing cutting-edge technologies within 30 feet of living reefs providing unprecedented research opportunities the vision of HIV is to provide global leadership in research to understand and conserve tropical marine ecosystems we provide the scientific foundation for informed stewardship of Hawaii's marine biodiversity our scientists are examining coral reefs with groundbreaking research on the single-cell algae and their host corals revealing the components of coral bleaching and disease further we lead the effort to isolate identify and control diseases of pacific corals and we use advanced informatics to support the management of large marine protected areas HIV researchers are on the forefront of understanding the chemical physical and biological processes in coral reef ecosystems we are gaining new insights into how resilient reefs may be to the future challenges of warming and acidification we lead the nation in studies on fish osmoregulation and provide knowledge that improves aquaculture practices around the world HIV researchers are discovering the dispersal patterns of larvae information that is critical to effectively manage a fishery and protect essential fish habitat for the future here scientists monitor the movement behavior and distribution of top predators including species that support Hawaii's fisheries we also assess hearing echolocation and sound production in whales and dolphins recent work has demonstrated that whales can adjust their hearing sensitivity to protect themselves against loud sounds if they are warned this research has also helped shape public policy concerning the conservation of shark populations a chime bead has a vibrant education program with efforts in the community and all levels of formal education we promote careers in marine science and management for local students and provide professional development opportunities for graduate students and researchers from around the world further we host more than 4,000 visitors a year and offer exciting interactive programs the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology conducts research that begins with ancient knowledge and projects forward into the most advanced realms of science the scientists students and volunteers at HIV provide research and education that can make a difference for our future and for the future of our ocean planet
