Governor reviews scuba spearfishing ban
Governor Neil Abercrombie is reviewing a rules package that would ban scuba spearfishing in waters off West Hawaii.
The Board of Land and Natural Resources approved the new rules at a meeting in June. According to West Hawaii Today, the package was delivered to the governor on Monday for his approval.
The rules would also limit aquarium fish collecting in West Hawaii to 40 species.
