Thank you! Here is a nice article about anchialine pools restoration efforts on Oahu:
"Interestingly, one out of every ten shrimp sampled for DNA turn out to be from Waianae, and Tagawa was surprised to learn they do not interbreed; they do not hybridize!" - interesting comment. I don't think the book "Hawaiian Anchialine Pool" mentioned this and the comment was after the book was published. The book did mentioned there are 3 different lineages in Oahu
Why wouldn't the Opae Ula share his food? Because he was a little shellfish
