The fish policy is put into place to help us maintain our fishery Not to keep this from you.
Our main goal is for the client to come out to Oahu, Hawaii and have a memorable outstanding deep sea fishing charter. so that you will return home and write great reviews for us online. That is our purpose, not to fish commercially.
The fish policy is anything under hundred pounds like mahi-mahi, ono (wahoo) or tuna, the tender, good eating fish. The clients are entitled to 50% or 50 pounds of fish ,whichever reached first. If the fish is over a hundred pounds and still healthy the fish will released to breed and be caught again. If the fish will not survive the release or the preditors following it, it will be harvested and sent to the block.
The reason for this policy is because most people are tourists staying in places such as Hilton Hawaiian Village or the Marriott where there are no stoves, ovens or even fridges to store, keep or to cook the fish. People typically want from 1 to 10 pounds of fish to grill and share. If we were to cut into a 100+ pound Marlin (tougher meat)or tuna for only 1 up to 50 pounds, then the majority of that fish will go to waste. That fish is sent to the block where the entire fish can be put to use.
