Beach Walk 694 – Diner’s Fish Report

Fish is a longtime staple in the diet here in Hawai’i, and you’ve probably noticed people fishing in the background of many Beach Walks episodes.

Yet at the same time fish populations are declining from the large scale commercial operations, that seem to be impervious to the effects of their behavior. If you want to eat fish but don’t know which ones are not threatened, you can now text “FISH” to 30644 right from your phone to find out. This is so convenient – you can do it while perusing a menu.

Hawaiian Word:
Iʻa: fish

Beach Walk 645 – Underwater Myths

I think I may be on one end of this spectrum, but I sometimes experience a little let down when I stick my head in goggles under the water. What we see published in magazines and in underwater films is amazing scenery. In reality, it usually does not look that perfect-pretty. Water absorbs a lot of light, so unless you are diving with a light or at high noon in clear, shallow water, you will not see the same colors with your eyes that a camera with light can. So today we are going underwater on an average day, with no special effects, to give you the expected view, if not the perfected view. I still love it anyway, and I hope it helps set your expectations to a more reasonable comfort zone too.

Hawaiian word:
Kohu ʻoiaʻiʻo: realistic

One more reason why we locals say, “Lucky to live Hawaii!”
