Ocean discussion at the Waikiki Aquarium

Hawaii's ocean resources will be discussed at 7 p.m. Wednesday as part of the Waikiki Aquarium's 95th Anniversary Celebration lecture series.

Craig MacDonald, marine biologist and ocean resources development manager for the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism, will explain how technologies allow benefits from the ocean not possible before.

Discussing the "Progress and Paradox" of ocean resources, he will address the problems of balancing their use and protection and present new thinking on market-based solutions that may permit both.

The aquarium's lecture series, titled "An Island View on a Global Ocean," features marine science developments and the role of Hawaii researchers in understanding the sea.

For a brochure outlining the lecture series dates and titles, call Carol Hopper in the aquarium's education department at 923-9741.

The aquarium is administered by the University of Hawaii-Manoa.
