I thought was illegal to sell opihi now. I didn't call DLNR but if you search opihi on craigs, get choke posting. The big island still getting raped.

Hello, Several times bills were introduce to ban the sales of Opihis...all fail...

With the limit amount of Opihis left? ...high prices for them...will make commercial sales more available...and in the future deplete the resources we have left!

We need to get another "well written and fair opihi ban for commercial sales" .....takes about 8 months to reach legal size for harvest....remove one...one less to breed...

Aloha,
