Thanks for the update WHT. There is just a tone of corruption between foreign entities and the DLNR. Currently the quota is set to go up an additional 800,000 lbs in 2018. Most of this fish caught in Hawaii waters by foreign workers and shipped out at $2 Lb. This is crazy so good luck to Malama Chun!
DLNR is a disgusting corrupt organization that needs to have its leadership removed along with all of its ‘security’ officers. Too many examples of abuse of power and selling our natural resources to the highest bidder.
