This map, which being populated continuously with addresses, phone numbers and www links (URLs) of farms, research institutes and educational institutions is connected to free iPhone (i.e., AquaHub) and Android (i.e., AquacultureHub) mobile applications.

The social networking provided by AquacultureHub has many extension benefits to individual farmers, hobbyists, students, entrepreneurs, and scientists.

ATOLL: Aquaculture Training On-line Learning - In response to this growing need, the University of Hawaii Aquaculture Program at the HNFAS, CTAHR, UHM has launched a new postsecondary online community outreach program called ATOLL: Aquaculture Training and Online Learning. This educational program is aimed to promote practical employment of the know-how in the practice of fisheries and aquaculture based on technical expertise pertinent to living marine resources management while extending an opportunity to the local people in the Hawaiian Islands and Pacific Islanders.

Most education on-campus at university or college is a fixed place, fixed time activity that is not possible for many people because of jobs or other commitments. Online learning, on the other hand, is an anywhere, anytime, any place activity that provides a flexible learning solution for such people. To ensure comprehensive and timely completion of the online classes and to provide hands-on practical experience to the students during the summer semester a unique ATOLL-Internship program as been developed at the Northern Marianas College's Cooperative Research Extension and Education Service (NMC-CREES) and with the office of the Mayor of Rota. Our innovative approach was possible via partnership with the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands Aquaculture Producers Association (CAPA) and the office of the Mayor of the Island and Monicipality of Rota. This novel UH-NMC-CREES-CAPA and Rota ATOLL-Internship approach will be replicated and tested on other Pacific Islands.
