Pebble Beach on fisheries council agenda (June 16)


The West Hawaii Fisheries Council meets 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 16 at the Hawaii Big Game Fishing Club at Honokohau Harbor.

Chairman Glennon Gingo will once again lead the Council through discussions on the 2010 recommendations that have already been submitted to the DAR/DLNR for the exclusion of Pebble Beach from aquarium fish collecting and the white list for collectors; the correct Hawaiian place names for permitted moorings in West Hawaii and the continuation of the discussion about the creation of Marine Reserves for West Hawaii.

The mission of the West Hawaii Fisheries Council is to “manage fishery activities to ensure sustainability, enhance near shore resources, minimize resource depletion and manage conflicts of use.”

The council was created after the 1998 state Legislature created Act 306 which called for a community source to formulate and recommend West Hawaii fisheries management actions and changes to the Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Division of Aquatic Resources.

Council meetings are open to the general public and, for those wanting to join, applications can be picked up at the Division of Aquatic Resource office at Honokohau Harbor in Kona as well as contacting Marni Herkes at 987-2171 or or Glennon Gingo at 960-9348.
