  • Description:
    "This research project has five main objectives: Develop a better understanding of the spearfish fishery and community; Identify key players and organizations associated with the fishery; Provide information to assist the State of Hawai'i and the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council in making decisions based on increased understanding of the ways people are socioeconomically affected by fishery policies; Document the perspectives/concerns of local spearfishermen and resources users; Contribute to the development and refinement of the fishing community profiles for Hawai'i in response to The Magnuson-Stevens Act, National Standard 8. These objectives are directly and indirectly addressed throughout the report in a number of different sections. Each section is designed to provide important and relevant data about the relative sociocultural importance of spearfishing in Hawai'i. Ultimately, the findings from this report can not only educate policy makers, stakeholders, and other researchers, but can lead to recommendations about strategies for continuing to build on accomplishments"--Intro.
