Fish Pond (Other Keyword)
1-2 (2 Records)
A single sample from a gleyed, organic-rich sandy layer within deposits identified as representing a brackish estuary for the Maunalua 2 Project was examined for pollen in an effort to confirm that this area was used as a fish pond. In addition, pollen analysis has the potential to identify some of the local plants growing at the time this area was used.
POLLEN ANALYSIS OF CORE SAMPLES FROM KAMO’OMAIKA’I FISH POND, HALELE’A DISTRICT, KAUA’I, HAWAII (2011)
Seven pollen samples collected from four separate cores at the Kamo’omaika’i fish pond in the Hanalei Ahupua’a of the Halele’a district in Kaua’i were examined (Table 1). The historic use of the area as a fishpond and also for rice agriculture is documented in the historic record. The use of this area prior to 1816, when it was described as a fish pond, is explored through this pollen analysis.
