In Molokai, Hawaii, the fishermen complain about the decline of fish in their waters. Ways to help the fishermen and denounce the dangerous practice of longline fishing by foreign tuna boats are being considered. Local fishermen have established a programme to protect the reserve, inspired by the ‘kapu’ system of traditional prohibition. It is based on the idea of personal responsibility, controlled fishing and education.
