Mahalo to everyone who contributed and partici-pated in the Oio tagging project over the years! Between 2008 and 2013, 1660 fish were tagged and 7 were recaptured in 2013. Our volunteers have increased to 590 fishermen and we are still growing on a weekly basis. We have been receiving more tagging reports from Molokai, Lanai and Maui as well.

Many of you have stopped by our booth at fishing tournaments, expos, and festivals. Be sure to look out for us again in the upcoming events! To all the Hawaii Fishing News readers, an article in the May 2013 issue synthe-sized many of our findings over the progression of the project.

Recently, we have enlisted the help of several local fishing-supply stores as pick-up locations for tagging supplies. If you're interested in a tagging kit or need more tags, please contact us and hopefully there is a participating store near you where you can pick up your supplies.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or requests!
