DLNR Statement today in response to Circuit Court ruling on aquarium fishing permits

News Release from DLNR October 27, 2017

Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Crabtree ruled today that, based upon a Hawaiʻi Supreme Court opinion issued on September 6, 2017, existing permits for use of fine mesh nets to catch aquatic life for aquarium purposes are illegal and invalid.  Judge Crabtree also ordered the DLNR not to issue any new permits pending environmental review.  

The department continues to believe that existing aquarium fishing practices are sustainable and environmentally sound.  And the department appreciates that dozens of local businesses and families depend on the industry for their livelihoods.

But the department respects Judge Crabtree’s ruling and will fully comply so long as it remains in effect.
