Fishing moratorium in effect Jan. 1 for Waikiki and Diamond Head

By Star-Advertiser staff

State officials are closing fishing areas in Waikiki and Diamond Head for one year starting Jan. 1 to allow populations to replenish themselves.

It's part of a regular closure every other year by the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

The plan will allow no fishing between shore and 500 yards into ocean waters from the Diamond Head Lighthouse to the Ewa wall of the Waikiki War Memorial Natatorium.

Those who fish in the restricted area are subject to fines and being charged with a petty misdemeanor.

manakuke, you are right. Now it is rape of the ocean. Every person can lay huge cheaply available nets everywhere without any concern about reason. Fish numbers of desirable fish are down 99% from what would be natural. So nobody has next to nothing.

The ban should be permanent. Next Jan.1 the ban will be lifted and by Jan. 2 there will be no fish left, again.
