Hawaii Aquarium Fisheries Halted

Recommended Posts

New permits and permit renewal was stopped last month, but as of Friday last week, the collection of fishes for the aquarium trade in Hawaii has officially halted until further notice.

As some of you know we received fish directly from Hawaii. Sadly, our supplier emailed Monday with the news. More importantly than us not having certain fish available, is the livelihoods of the locals in Hawaii who depended on the business. We hope they can all make ends meet until this is finally sorted and decided on.

Those poor fishermen. I hope they have other means to get by.

In unrelated news, I'll be selling a flame wrasse for $250,000 if someone wants one.

This is unfortunately what we saw coming with the recent updates. Jake highlights such a major point that is being overlooked by others having input in the decision making process. The knee-jerk overreaction to this truly may cost some families their means of living. Hopefully the collection will resume soon, but I fear the slippery slope has begun. If we can find any good in all of this - "perhaps" there will be more investment from the industry as a whole into aquaculture.

 

Selling my wrasse for 249,999.00 - free house included with purchase.
