HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Many people were out doing some last minute shopping for sashimi.

Crowds jammed Tamashiro Market, everyone looking for the best quality fish for the right price for the New Year's party.

Prices for the higher end quality ahi were hovering around $30.

When Hawaii News Now went to check things out Friday morning, some supplies of certain grades of fish were already running low.

"Every year is a little different, the economic conditions are a little different, the supply is different, everything changes. You can never just get it right, it just changes every year," manager Guy Tamashiro said.

Customers say for the most part, they were happy with their selections.
