The Facts About Hawaii's Marine Aquarium Fishery

Kevin Erickson, the Director At Large for the Marine Aquarium Societies of North America (MASNA) has just notified us that MASNA has launched a new initiative, HawaiiBanFactCheck.org, to keep hobbyist and other stakeholders informed as to what is going on in Hawai'i.

As you know from past blog posts, there is a lot going on in Hawai'i right now and it's definitely a good idea to keep abreast on what is happening there. I highly recommend Liking their Facebook Page and optionally subscribing to their RSS feed in your news reader of choice so that you have the latest information at your finger tips.

About Hawaii Ban Fact Check:

HawaiiBanFactCheck.org is a Marine Aquarium Societies of North America (MASNA) initiative created to assess statements made in regard to legislation seeking to ban or regulate the marine aquarium trade in Hawaii.

HawaiiBanFactCheck.org monitors the factual accuracy of information disseminated by individuals, anti-trade groups, politicians, and others seeking to close or regulate Hawaii’s marine aquarium fishery, as well as information put forth by individuals supporting the trade.

The goal is to assess the accuracy of the information and educate the public about the facts concerning Hawaii’s marine aquarium fisheries and trade. MASNA—which supports a robust and sustainable marine aquarium trade based on a combination of aquaculture, mariculture and sustainable aquarium fisheries—represents multiple marine aquarium societies across North America and thousands of aquarists worldwide.
