There’s An Ancient Fishpond Hiding In Hawaii And You’ll Want To Visit

Nearly 1,000 years ago, before Western contact, the people of Hawaii created a system by which to supply themselves with a constant source of fresh fish. While many of these ancient Hawaiian fishponds have long since deteriorated, there is one fishpond found on Oahu that not only is still in use, but is one of the largest ever created in the islands. This is the Moli’i Fishpond, and it is a piece of living history you’ll definitely want to visit.

Have you visited the Moli’i fishpond on Oahu? I’ve got to admit, it is a pretty incredible place, and so fascinating to learn about. If you’re interested in ancient Hawaii and local mythology, be sure to check out the extraordinary legend of the Hawaiian Menehune.
