National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence Sylvia Earle presented the Hawaii-born Obama with a framed plaque of his new namesake marine species while the President was visiting Midway Atoll following his expansion of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.

The Kure Atoll's deep-water reefs, where the first specimen of the fish was found, hold a special biological distinction: all of the 17 genera and 22 species that live there occur only in the northwest Hawaiian Islands in and around the monument. Remarkably, this new fish species is found only within the monument itself.
