December 16, 2011

Leilehua High School junior Ian Kaopua did his senior project on overfishing. Part of his project was to hold a fishing tournament to highlight sustainable fishing through encouraging tag and release, fishing only with barbless hooks, and supporting research efforts. The tournament weigh-in was held at his house where the message to the participants was delivered by Ian himself.
