Scalloped hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini, are the subject of several studies at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, a world-renowned research institute situated on Coconut Island in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii.

The main holding facility there is a large saltwater enclosure fenced at both ends and open to the surrounding seawater. The shark pen is approximately 65 feet by 300 feet with live coral growing along the sides of the channel.  This provides habitat for reef fishes and invertebrates.  The semi-natural habitat is ideal for maintaining medium sized sharks, up to six feet, for long term studies.  Sharks maintained in the shark pond are used for age and growth studies.

Cocunut Island is surrounded by 64 acres of coral reef, designated by the state of Hawaii as the Hawaii Marine Laboratory Refuge.
