                                Kahului fishermen Jamie Joyo, 54, left, and son Keoni Joyo, 21, looked for oama, juvenile goatfish, Saturday at Kahului Harbor. The pair were happy to hear about the Maui rule changes proposed by the state Division of Aquatic Resources that would expand the definition of oama to include weke a and weke ula, two species that are difficult to distinguish, and increase the size limit from 5 to 8 inches.

                                The proposed changes would ban use of all nets within the Kahului Harbor FMA, removing existing exceptions for the commercial take of nehu, akule and juvenile mullet — activities that often created conflicts between harbor users.
