We have a system of management, Act 212 signed by Governor Linda Lingle in 2007 then Act 288 by Governor Neil in 2012, PETA is just another wild excuse of over regulated management and enforcement that shows no regard for traditions and customs which before any of these scientific data is excepted they need to talk to the people who have depended on the ocean resources for generations. Disallowing the rights of native Hawaiians to practice can be a human rights violation. if i cannot teach...

I'm a HUGE supporter of PETA for most of their work to protect animals and ensure they are treated ethically. BUT I think they were wrong on this one, really wrong. PETA: please focus more energy on protecting our whales, dolphins and other sea mammals and leave our non commercial fishermen alone.

If you're looking for a target to blame over-fishing on, look no further than the federal fishery management councils. Cascadia Times published some very revealing articles on how corruption has plagued Hawaii's fisheries for decades.

Kanaka Maoli practiced sustainable fishing for centuries by applying rules based on simple and honest observations. The United States invasion of Hawaii and subsequent application of "science-based" fisheries management is destroying the future of sustainability in all corners of Hawaii. The latest attack is the science of GMO.

In other words PETA wants us to stop fishing thus stop living. Shameful!
