Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpua’a – Hawaii state fish

Haa! Just realized that Humu­humu­nuku­nuku­āpua’a is the state fish of Hawaii. It’s reef triggerfish.

On April 17, 2006, bill HB1982 was presented to the Governor of Hawai’i which permanently reinstated the reef triggerfish (humuhumunukunukuapua’a) as the state fish of Hawai’i. The bill passed into law on May 2, 2006 and was effective upon its approval. (Source: Hawaii)
