Data Center Description
Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) is a world-renowned research
institute situated on Coconut Island in Kane'ohe Bay. This ideal location is
just 15 miles from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and downtown Honolulu.

In addition, Coconut Island itself provides excellent opportunities for
research. It is surrounded by 64 acres of coral reef, designated by the State
of Hawai'i as the Hawai'i Marine Laboratory Refuge. Only researchers
associated with HIMB are allowed to collect specimens from the refuge. The
island itself covers approximately 29 acres, with 6 acres enclosed in lagoons
that are used for keeping organisms in captivity for study.

HIMB provides research facilities for its faculty and students, who come from
all over the world. Ongoing research at HIMB covers many disciplines of
tropical marine science.
