Makes perfect sense drill oil, oil rigs blow up spill oil, kill all wildlife as we know it.

This is a little misleading. How is this a total aquarium ban? How is this not BETTER?

Quote:
Establishes prohibitions, penalties, and fines for knowingly selling aquatic life for aquarium purposes taken from waters within the jurisdiction of the State. Requires an aquarium permit to take marine or freshwater nongame fish and other aquatic life for aquarium purposes. Imposes new standards for aquarium permit issuance determinations.

What I get from this, is they want to ban sale of aquarium fish harvested from hawaii. To get the universities and such on board they make it legal to collect if you have a permit. They state for "aquariums purposes". That doesn't mean selling, that means the public aquarium or research aquarium can hire someone with a permit to collect some fish for them.

You have to watch what they say. They use the term aquarium, but I don't think they're talking about personal aquariums.

It doesn't say you can sell them, only harvest for aquarium purposes, whatever that means.

Ahhh ok, I understand. I guess I just read the good into it, not the bad.

I think you guys have over analyzed this...it seems like they're just banning people from selling fish that were captured and to track how many of these fish are being taken from the water (permit). Most of us don't live in HA so we do not know how the biodiversity is being affected. Someone who proposed this bill is probably seeing a dramatic decrease of fish or certain species.

They are not banning people from having fish. Just trying to keep track of what's going on.

That's how I see it anyway, so if I missed something fill me in
