Agriculture & Fishing

Hawaii's agriculture and fishing industries provide many local jobs and are needed to provide fresh food for Hawaii's visitors and residents. Fresh food and fish are highly recommended for a healthy and nutritious diet. Additionally, visitors have come to expect fresh food and fresh fish from Hawaii when they visit Hawaii. It is now an integral part of the visitor experience since Hawaii's chefs have incorporated fresh food and fish into island menus. 

Those in the agriculture and fishing industries should also be supported and encouraged. Without Hawaii fresh food and fish, Hawaii would have to import an increasing amount of its food supply. Hawaii should develop its agriculture and fishing industries so the islands can be self sustaining for its people. In an emergency, locally grown food and fish can provide the necessary food for residents and visitors.
