Crispin B. Santos cited for suspicion of selling undersized Ahi in Kahuli Maui

by Thunda

(Kahului, Maui) – After receiving an anonymous tip a pair of officers from the DLNR Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) cited a 37-year-old Kahului resident on suspicion of selling undersized ahi. The species is one of the most popular food fish in Hawai‘i. 

At 3 p.m. yesterday, DOCARE officers cited Crispin B. Santos, after an investigation, based on reports he was selling the undersized fish in the Lahaina area. Officers found him in possession of fifteen (15) ahi, weighing between two and two and a half pounds.  

Hawai‘I Administrative Rules make it “unlawful to possess with the intent to sell or offer for sale any ahi less than three pounds in weight.” 

Santos was given a court date to appear in Lahaina District Court.
