I'm glad to see that no matter what the state of the economy is, tradition is never forgotten. The locals will pay the going price for sashimi no matter what the $$$$ is.

Rugers market Has lost its local kind grinds atmosphere. I wen orda da mix Kanaka plate. Sooo expensively junk and da place wen gone down the tube as service there is slow/poke, and unlocal. The local food has da different taste with prices soooo high its to unaffordable. I tried Haili's on Kapahulu but bra no more parking. Dat Ono's kuy tink his kaukau is worth his sergents orders wen you got to wait outside in da hot sun. Rugers use to be a good place and out of the way of the hustle and bustle of da crowd. Whats da happenings to dis places? Auwe bradda I goin stick it out wit Youngs Fish market aldough you gotta go wey down Dlillinghams. Soory braddas and sistas I wen get carried away from da topic of sashimi. Aloha and happy new year.

Thanks for leaving that ONO headline off the electronic edition of page one. In the printed edition today, that big headline made the headline writer look uninformed. Ono is a mackerel fish called wahoo in English, and the story was about `ahi, which is tuna. Unless of course you meant to say "delicious" and that is spelled `ONO. You folks need a Hawaiian-English, English-Hawaiian Dictionary.

Hawaii is under sneak attack by the Republicans. Lingle has brought in national republican hitmen Rush Limbaugh and Carl Rove pretending to be on vacation but are here to help Lingle destroy Hawaii's economy. Getting rid of locals is number one and replacing them with mainland businesses and workers. Remember Rush and Carl helped Bush destroy the U.S. economy, Hawaii is next. Pray hard but vote for anybody but a republican. Remember the republicans are trained deceivers. Save yourself and family.

This is the only time of the year, where the fishermen and the fish vendors make their quotas forthe year. On saturday, the price of sashimi will drop 50%. What a way to make your bucks.

I would estimate that between 60-70% of the bigeye ahi is shipped to customers in the mainland. The notion that this supply benefits the local market is shibai.
UFA, Fresh Island Fish, Honolulu Fish, Tropics and T.J Kraft ship tons to the mainland that's why fish is short in supply and expensive year round.
Tanioka's has fish because they cater to the Hawaii market solely. Mahalos to them and Tamashiro's!

The Republicans are a threat to Hawaii and to America.

It's scum like Limbaugh, Ken Conklin, Burges, white missionaries and those that overthrew the Hawaiian government trying to "justify" their crimes by aligning themselves to some "god given" right to exploit others for profit!

What an irony, that racist-vomit spewing Limbaugh getting medical treatment at Queen's hospital, which was founded by Hawaii's royalty to address the decimation of the Hawaiian race due to white induced diseases, exploitation and genocide by bigots like himself! Rush probably got a heart attack by taking too much viragra and looking for some action on the side!

Instead of freeing those two whales tangled with rope that Mufi missed while trying to harpoon them, they should have turned it over to the Fish market. Tons of valuable sashimi were let loose.

They should have eaten him, we are whale meat in north Dakota when we were poor!

Did the Indians chase down whales on the plains of North Dakota while riding bareback on horses? I must have missed that one in the history books.

This fish and shashimi thing is so bogus. The fish is all exported and they make a killing during this time of the year.

We are the fish. We get hooked. Hell I will wait till Monday if I want to eat poke or shashimi.

This is not a tradition. This is a rip off that we buy into. Stick your fish on the airplanes and send them off. Hell what is worth $30.00 a pound.

Stupid, gullible people....
happy new year
