Franko’s Mini Hawaiian Reef Creatures Guide
Sides 1 and 2 show the wonderful reef life of the Hawaiian Islands. Even though there are seven other 6" x 9"fish cards representing the individual islands of Hawaii and the State of Hawaii as a whole, it just seemed like a good idea to make a tiny, handy fish card that could fit right in your pocket. Just like the other mini-map fish cards, the fish shown include over 80 species, including a dozen or so that are found nowhere else on earth. The Hawaiian fish shown are selected from about 435 species that exist in Hawaii, and are based on Franko’s personal exploration. The colors and the means of showing them are based on personal observation. The naming of the fish in Hawaiian as well as English is helped by the experts at the Maui Ocean Center, The Pacific Whale Foundation, Hanauma Bay rangers, The Waikiki Aquarium, and local knowledge. The fish card, which measure 6" x 9", is printed on plastic and then laminated so that it is stiff, shiny and waterproof. It has a hole for a lanyard, so you can actually take it diving or snorkeling. I use a thick rubber band from a one-use underwater camera as an effective lanyard for mine. This little fish card is really cool. With Franko’s mini fish cards of the California Kelp Forests, as well as the Caribbean and the Mexican Caribbean, there is getting to be a nice collection.
