State of Hawaii
United States of America

The State of Hawaii is currently trying to ban the aquarium fishery which is the most managed near shore fishery in the State.

Science provides up to date fish counts and does not support a total ban. This is an environmental movement against fishing, and against management.

It is the only fishery to complete the Chapter 343 HEPA process. It is heavily managed with species restriction, gear restriction, bag limits, slot limits, area restriction and limitations to entry.

We, the undersigned, call to the State of Hawaii not to ban any form of fishing within State waters.

We support fishery management, backed by scientific data, to ensure the fish and reefs will be around for generations to come.
