Hanalei Fishing Survey

Hanalei Watershed Hui (HWH) has been providing logistical support to Impact Assessment, Inc. (IAI) who is conducting a fishery study for Hanalei Bay. Funded by the Hawaii Community Stewardship Network and DLNR DAR, Jack Kittinger has conducted focused interviews with fisherfolk in Hanalei to learn more about the history and contemporary fishery. Interviews provide an opportunity for fishers to discuss their practices, concerns, and any recommendations they have for management of the Hanalei fishery.

This information will be utilized in the development of the Community Resiliency Plan and ultimately the Hanalei Integrated Resource Management Plan.
