Some of the activities currently occurring in the NWHI include a small commercial bottomfish/pelagic fishery that is active in federal waters of the NWHI, and will be allowed to continue for no longer than five years. The NWHI coral reef ecosystem is also the site of ongoing scientific and monitoring activities to explore, map and better understand the unique ecosystem. Research and monitoring activities on terrestrial areas have created some of the longest term and most complete seabird databases in the world. These efforts are often joint projects among many partners, including NOAA, USFWS, Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources, the University of Hawaii, and others. Co-trustee agencies are authorized to issue permits for a variety of other activities in the Monument, including research and monitoring, Native Hawaiian practices, education, special ocean use (activities engaged in to generate revenue or profits that do not destroy, cause the loss of, or injure Monument resour
