Scuba Fishing Ban To Preserve Hawaii’s Vulnerable Species
A contentious debate is stirring in the Aloha State between fishermen and those looking to preserve species living in the regions’ coral reefs.
Spearfishers feel they are being blamed for the decrease in the number of fish inhabiting Hawaii’s reefs. They feel there are many factors contributing to the lower number of tropical fish in Hawaii. However, the state believes overfishing is a major factor in the decrease of reef fish in Hawaiian waters. Despite the heated debate, the state decided to ban spearfishing in selected areas by a 4-2 vote. Aloha, Russ.
