West Hawaii Fisheries Council meeting (Jan. 19)


West Hawaii Fisheries Council meets 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19 at Hawaii Big Game Fishing Club, Honokohau Harbor.

This meeting will include following up on issues that were discussed at the Strategic Planning in December and commiting to strategic actions to implement each committee program.

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 Hawaii 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 at 987-2171 or or Glennon at 960-9348.
