State hosting Oahu meetings on fish regulations

HONOLULU (AP) - The state is hosting additional meetings on Oahu this month to discuss possible fishing limits.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says it's prepared a set of draft rules that would support fish conservation while balance the needs of fishermen.

The state's efforts have focused on three fish groups: goatfish, parrotfish and jacks.

Officials have talked to the public about the possibility of changing the minimum size fish must be to be caught and adopting bag limits to control catch.

The Oahu meetings are due to be held at Kaneohe on Friday, Mililani on July 13, and Honolulu on July 15.

The department has finished holding neighbor island public meetings on the issue.
