Itlgld lliifiirrriiiriil of tin' Neil
I'isli Inspector J. M. Herring is dill
gcnllv I'lifoieing llie new Inw kiwiI by
the legislature, ilctigttul lo prevent the
wmitiiu destruction of food fishes living
in the writ cm of the Territory.
I,rt week 11 number of nrrcsts were
made, ptiui'im1ly among Japanese for'
violating the law wllh reference lo fish
ing with nets, the mesh which measures
less than two inches stretched or one inch
square. Hetctofiur no lestrictiott has
bleu placid on the sire of the mesh or
opening in nets, nnd the fisherman have
been found using ns small as n one-quarter
inch mesh mid in some instances
mosquito netting. In this manner thou
sands upon thousands of the young fish
were caught, nnd when too small to be
enten were dumped on the bench. Sevc
rnl thousand were destroyed nt every
linul, until the passage of the Knlama
law, which prohibits the use of nets or
other contrivances having a smaller mesh
than ns prescriled.
Hy the ndoptlon of n one inch opening,
the smaller fish nrc permitted to escape
mid only marketable fish nrc caught. In
spector Herring says that Hie best Iln
waiiau food fishes are rapidly disappear
ing, because of the indiscriminate catch
ing of yout-g fish. Years ago, the waters
of Hilo Hay swarmed with fish nnd the
unlives often vvndcd nlong the bench with
pole mid line and caught quantities of
fish which nrc now quite rnre. lie confi
dently expects that under the new law
the food fishes will become plentiful mid
he has served notice on nil net fisherman
that no small mesh nets will be allowed.
There are six crews or companies of Jap
anese net fishermen along the Hilo beach,
who have been required to make new
nets to conform with the lnw mid nil
cast nets will be similarly modified.
The new law provides a penalty for in
fraction of the lnw of not less thnn 20
nnd not more thnn 200, or by imprison
ment not less than 10 nor more than 90
days, or by both imprisonment mid fine.
It is provided, however, that young fish
may be caught for the purpose of restock
ing ponds or for scientific or aquarium
It was n surprise to the United States
Pish Commission, when they nrrived
here lo find that greater restrictions of
this nature had not already been imposed
ou fishing, considering that the princi
pal source ol the Hawaiian's food supply
wns derived from fish. Under the old
konohiki fishing law, enacted in 1869, all
fishing grounds belonging to government
land were granted lo Ihe people but the
Minister of the Interior might taboo the
Inking of fish thereon nt certain seasons
ofthcyenr. The fishing grounds were
supposed lo extend one gcogrnphicnl
mile seaward from the beach nnd were
considered under the lnw ns the private
property of the konohiki, to whose land
by ancient regulations it belonged.
Like the government, the kouohikis
were empowered to indicate nt what
time or times the fish might be caught
on their fisliiug grounds. They might
even set apart for themselves one given
species or variety ol fish, giving public
notice oral or written lo their tenants
and others, to the effect. The specific
fish so set npnrt wns reserved for the ex
clusive use of the konohiki nnd when
caught by others was the konohiki's
property mid could be nppriprinted to his
own use. He nlso could exact, during
the fishing season, from each fisherman
among the teuumits, one-third part of nil
the fish taken upon his private fishing
grounds. It wns provided, however, that
the konohiki might taboo only one kind
of fish for his personal use.
