Lynker In the Field with Our Liaison 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!
