Lynker In the Field: Hideyo Hattori

Lynker’s Hideyo Hattori, who serves as site liaison for the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation and Coastal Zone Management programs in American Samoa, is partaking in local Samoan delicacy – palolo worms! These worms are only available for a short time between mid-October and early November and are collected with a net for preparation in many local dishes. Hideyo collected and prepared these worms himself for our jurisdictional workshop here in American Samoa!
