What is CTAHR’s impact on Hawai‘i? Is our research relevant to the state’s needs and sustainability? Does our outreach benefit the local economy, environment, and food supply?

Andy Reilly, in the Fashion Design and Merchandising program, was consulted for a recent article in the PBS News Hour about new clothing manufacturers who are targeting a wider range of consumers, including those who are transgender or have another less traditional gender presentation or lack thereof.
Andre Seale (Department of Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences) and collaborators have published two new studies on aquacultured tilapia, a common and adaptable farmed fish in the Islands. Both discuss the ways the fish are affected by the water they are raised in and other environmental conditions, including salinity, light and darkness, and chemicals.
