Olelo Hoolaha / Public Notice

I am the one whose name appears below, and I publicly proclaim: the ‘Ahi has been declared the chosen fish of the Konohiki for Honomalino, Kona, Hawai‘i.  Pertaining to entry within a mile, as outlined in the Civil Code, beginning on page 62 paragraph 387 and continuing on until the end of said law concerning the chosen fish of the Konohiki, therefore all persons fishing in these two ‘Ahi Fishing Grounds, ‘Āinahou and Kamaua, are advised to remember the division of the catch between the fishermen and the Konohiki.  I shall bring whosoever does not heed this restriction before the judge. To attest to the veracity of this statement above, I set my name:


    Land Steward
