Tide and Current chronicles 10 years in the life of author and artist Carol Araki Wyban, during which she lived with, learned about, and came to love the fishponds of Hawaii. In lyric prose and art, the book captures the essence of the timeless ecological truths she discovered.

The author relates her experiences from the viewpoint of an entrepreneur, but one with a deep commitment to the past and to the legacy given to us by the ancient Hawaiians regarding the use of fishponds as food production systems. Unlike other native cultures that hunted and gathered over vast territories, the Hawaiians developed renewable, sustainable, and comprehensive management of their natural resources in the islands’ limited space. They were innovators who took a great step from catching fish to raising fish. Wyban presents not only the daily routine of life at a commercial fishpond, but also an in-depth look at how the Hawaiians managed their resources, the technology they developed, and the myths, legends, and kapu associated with their fishponds.

From the Author:

"Fishponds are living cultural treasures. I see them as important springboards for education, because they give us the opportunity to explore the way Hawaiians used the land and water."

Review:

A remarkable statement.... It leaves the reader with an enormous appreciation of an intricate system which for centuries provided subsistence to a people who were completely dependent on the land and sea around them. --Hawaiian Journal of History

Wyban writes about fishponds from personal experience.... This shows in the prose.... A technical-type book written with some personal feeling is a rare and wonderful find. --Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Book Description University of Hawaii Press. Hardcover. Condition: New. 210 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.This well-crafted story collection clearly reflects the authors entrepreneurial experiences rebuilding and then operating a productive Hawaiian Island fishpond on Oahus North Shore. It presents a rare combination of lyric prose and art that capture the ecological truths Carol Wyban, her family - with their Hawaiian friends and neighbors - discovered how to adapt to the mid-Pacific Oceans ebb and flow. TIDE and CURRENT: Fishponds of Hawaii shares hard-won insights with practical lessons re-learned about both natural forces and political land use policies. Its acknowledgements begin with this simple Hawaiian saying: Aia ke ola ka hana meaning . . . Life is in labor. This book reflects facts from prior Aquaculture research done by J. A. Wyban and J. N. Sweeney that resulted in publishing a 19991 report on Intensive Shrimp Production Technology: The Oceanic Institute Shrimp Manual. The Oceanic Institute, Hawaii, USA, 158 pp. As a state-owned pond on Molokai, Ualapue was selected by the state to be a model Aquaculture project. Carol Wybans book describes more about this effort on p. 154 While profit and economic development utilizing modern Aquaculture techniques are major long-term goals, equally important goals are the revitalization of traditional Hawaiian fishpond practices and the preservation of the history, culture, and values associated with Ualapue. Visit the University of Hawaii WebSite for more oral history on fishpond restoration projects. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover.
