Day without Ahi affects restaurants and customers

A Manoa Poke Shop is back in business after an Ahi shortage forced them to close for a day earlier this week. “I got a call from the guy who goes to the auction for us. He said there was no boats in that day. So, I called my staff and told them there’s no boats, which means there’s no fish. Which means we are closed that day,” said Off the Hook Poke Market co-owner JP Lam. “We’ve seen this maybe once a year. Maybe less than that. Maybe 3 or 4 times over the last 5 years.,” said Lam. “I wouldn’t think the cause was ocean conditions or atmospheric conditions. It’s more of the uncertainty of fishing itself. The fish are not always where we think they are,” said Hawaii Longline Fishing Association President Sean Martin. >click to read< 09:50
