Official State Fish of Hawaii

The Humuhumunukunukuapua`a (Rhinecanthus rectangulus) was designated the official state fish of Hawaii on a five year trial basis in 1985. When the trial quietly lapsed in 1990, no action was taken to either reinstate it or designate a new species.

It wasn't until 2006 that notice was taken that Hawaii was without a state fish, and the Humuhumunukunukuapua`a was reinstated as the official state fish on a permanent.

How to pronounce it: “who-moo-who-moo-noo-koo-noo-koo-ah-pooah-ah".

Now try saying that three times in a row!
