Aquaculture Discussion: What is Pono Aquaculture?

Media Release:

Date: Saturday, April 10, 2010

Time: 4-6PM

Location:  The Ohana Room in Kona Stories Bookstore (next to the Island Naturals health food store in mauka Kona)

Fish farming is an important cultural tradition and key to ensuring future food security in Hawai`i.  But it must be done in a pono way to ensure the health of our community’s pristine ocean and wild fisheries for future generations.

Unfortunately, there is a big push going on to increase unsustainable factory fish farms in Hawai’i’s pristine ocean waters – an industry which is set to increase production by 780% in the next five years.

Please come join members of the newly-formed state-wide Pono Aquaculture Alliance to discuss the meaning of pono aquaculture, to learn how to protect our pristine waters and wild fisheries from the expansion of industrial fish farms and how you can help shape the future of fish farming in Hawai`i.

Speakers: Charles Flaherty -`Apono Hawai`i,  Issac Harp – Northwestern Hawai`i Islands Alliance, Christina Lizzi and Rob Parsons – Food & Water Watch
