Community-Based Subsistence Fishing Area proposed along Maui coastline
How do you protect your ocean resources and near-shore fisheries? The group Kīpahulu ʻOhana has been working with fishermen to develop rules to create a Community-Based Subsistence Fishing Area to protect marine life along the roughly 6 miles of Maui coastline. The proposed Kīpahulu CBSFA is from Kālepa Gulch to Pua‘alu‘u Gulch.
The Conversation sat down with Executive Director Scott Crawford about the work that began over a decade ago.
