We’ve already introduced this petition to stop the ban on Hawaiian aquarium collection once before, but given its recent resurgence in popularity on social media websites like Facebook, we decided to write about it again to help keep the momentum going in any way we could. The petition is a simple one. It asks for nothing more than the State of Hawaii to not ban any form of fishing within its legally recognized waters. It further goes on to say that “we”, the aquarium community collective, support fisheries that have been deemed sustainable by scientific data.
We highly suggest that you read the petition (link in the above text) and sign it if you are in support of the aquarium industry. The aquarium industry is under constant attack from activists in Hawaii and other parts of the world, and anything we can do to help will help preserve our hobby for future generations.
