Aloha PETA, I am a long time supporter of PETA, the founder of Kai Palaoa (a Marine Protection Organization--www.kaipalaoa.com) and a Native Hawaiian. However, I believe PETA is misinformed on this issue. Peta might consider reviewing the Stanford University studies which looked to Hawaiian Ocean resources management as the model for global ocean and fishery recovery. It is not the Traditional/Cultural Practices still practiced by Native Hawaiians today that have caused the fishery crisis...

However, I believe PETA is misinformed on this issue. Peta might consider reviewing the Stanford University studies which looked to Hawaiian Ocean resources management as the model for global ocean and fishery recovery. It is not the Traditional/Cultural Practices still practiced by Native Hawaiians today that have caused the fishery crisis nor are these practices depleting the fish stocks. It is Corporate Fishing practices such as long liners and other abusive and unsustainable practices that are raping the sea. Native Hawaiian fishing practices are proven to be sustainable. They sustained a large population for thousands of years. The fallacy of modernity and its unsustainable Corporate TAKING is what should be sanctioned not Native Hawaiians. Let us challenge them together--because in the Profit is not a RIGHT !!!!

We take particular offense with PETA's national press release which included the fisherman's home address. These sorts of ridiculous attacks on people's livelihoods and privacy cannot be tolerated. http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/22924689/peta-blasts-kauai-fisherman-who-nearly-died-while-catching-huge-ahi

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...

PETA has overstepped their boundaries when they tell Kanaka (Hawai`ian) they cannot practice the subsistence they have known for generations. This is like tell the American Indians they cannot kill and eat the deer anymore. I hear no resistance to GMO Salmon which is done by the government or the cloning of animals done in labs. We are scientifically classified as mammals and so PETA, where is my protection from others that would and do-do harm. You are not protecting me and my Ohana...

You are not protecting me and my Ohana (family) you are performing genocide by denying a culture what it needs to live. We are not wasting or torturing the fish we eat them. Poi and fish are what we eat, do the researchbe cause you don't give your pet fish dog food, that would just kill the fish. Canned processed meats and tainted dairy are killing us these are facts that are ignored in the name of profit but we know it is truly called Genocide.

I totally agree with cultural practices. There are non cultural people who take advantage. Shame on you. Take pride in the culture and DO NOT allow bad practices to give outsiders the advantage . Love Hawaii culture, waters, land, and people. Respect Hawaii. It is a beautiful and fragile environment that all people have to respect to protect. Mahalo for your respect of all Hawaii's creatures.
