Hawaii Fishing & Seafood Festival

Aloha Hawaii Fishing and Seafood Festival Vendors and Participants –

The Pacific Islands Fisheries Group would like to thank you again for helping to make the Hawaii Fishing and Seafood Festival one of Hawaii premier community events in the State. This could never have been accomplished without the support and participation from vendors and event-goers like you!

Due to a number of unfortunate circumstances, this year’s Hawaii Fishing and Seafood Festival (2014) will not be held. Perhaps if circumstance improve in 2015, the festival will return even bigger and better.

Again, MAHALO for your support and understanding. A HUI HOU!

Recap of the 2013 Fishing For Hawaii’s Hungry:

The PIFG in partnership with the Institute for Human Services (IHS), have embarked on a project called “Fishing For Hawaii’s Hungry” prior to kick-off the 8th Annual Hawaii Fishing & Seafood on October 5-6. All participants donated their catch at POP Fishing & Marine (Pier 38) on Sunday, October 6, 2013. PIFG delivered the fish to IHS, so they could prepare meals for hundreds of people, families and Keiki.
