Pauline Fiene , 2009

Pauline Fiene, a marine biologist with over 8,700 dives, has studied Hawaiian marine life for twenty-seven years, discovering over 60 new species of opisthobranchs, two of which have been named for her. Through detailed annual monitoring she discovered the spawning pattern of Hawaii's most abundant species of coral - the first time spawning had been determined for this species worldwide - and now offers trips for divers to see this rare daylight spawning event. She is coauthor of several books including Molokini - Hawaii's Island Marine Sanctuary; and Diving Hawaii and Midway; and with Cory Pittman published the comprehensive Hawaiian nudibranch website, www.seaslugsofhawaii.com covering over 500 species of Hawaiian sea slugs.
