Management goals include:
Rose Atoll suffered from an oil spill, grounding, and wreck of a Taiwanese longliner in 1993. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's monitoring of injuries led to support from the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund Act to remove the ship debris and monitor recovery of the atoll. As of 2007, all ship debris has been removed and the atoll continues to recover based on monitoring studies since 1994.
Vibrant hues include electric blue, gold, and dark teal, faisua are rare in the rest of the region but thrive at the refuge.
