Activity overview:

In tribute to his marine conservation efforts in the Pacific, a scientist has planned to name a new species of fish after President Obama.

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.
