Long Sleeve Network T-Shirt
We are proud to share our Maui Nui Makai Network logo on this quality shirt featuring beautiful moi artwork by Hawai'i' illustrator, Tammy Yee. This men's cut essential is 100% cotton, crew neck, and long sleeve.
Moi, or Pacific threadfin (Polydactylus sexfilis), are coveted food fish in Hawai'i, once reserved only for chiefs in ancient Hawai'i. It is one of the relatively few Hawaiian fishes to undergo sex reversal, changing from male to female by the time it reaches about 10 inches in length. Many of our Network members work to protect moi populations in their areas through outreach and education, since in addition to the State's closed season for harvesting moi from June to August, spawning cycles can vary across locations.
The smaller moi li'i on the arm accompany The Maui Nui Makai Network's motto "Paipai a Ola" which means encourage and live ‒ encourage each other to sustain the relationships within our communities and with the land and sea - those are the relationships that we need to thrive .
Ehuehu kai, noho ka moi
Where the sea broils, there the moi fish dwell
