Expedition to survey and remove marine debris in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands

By Mark Manuel

As the CRED marine debris team transits back to Honolulu on the NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette, check out some highlights from our successful mission to survey and remove marine debris from remote islands and atolls in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
