The State of Hawaii has recently published two draft environmental assessments (DEAs) for commercial aquarium fishing permits on the Island of Oahu and the Island of Hawaii. The DEAs were prepared pursuant to the Hawaii Environmental Protection Act pursuant to a Hawaii Supreme Court decision. These are documents that collect, synthesize, and analyze available scientific information concerning the impacts of aquarium fishing on the environment.
If you believe that DEAs are complete documents that adequately evaluate the potential effects of aquarium collection on the environment, then please use this link to provide comments to Hawaii on this important document. Activist groups that are opposed to fishing in any form are pressing hard to ban the fishery regardless of the science, so your comments are needed.

PIJAC board Chair honored as Woman of Influence by Pet Age
By PIJAC Staff
PIJAC is proud to announce that Laura “Peach” Reid, the first female Chair of our Board of Directors, has been honored as a “Woman of Influence” by Pet Age.
With over 40 years in the responsible pet industry, Peach is well-known for her business leadership and her community service. Currently the President and CEO of Fish Mart, Inc., Reid has served as PIJAC’s Board Chair since March 2016.
“I am grateful to Pet Age for honoring me as a Woman of Influence,” said Reid, who has served on multiple boards in her hometown of Orange, Connecticut, at her alma mater University of New Haven, and elsewhere. “It’s an honor to be in the company of so many women who have helped guide the pet industry to where it is today. I hope that Pet Age’s award will serve as an example of what is possible for women across our industry.”
The Pet Age honor is just the latest for Reid, who in 1998 was honored as a “Woman of Substance” in the Connecticut Post, and received the Connecticut Small Business Person of the Year award in 2001. In 2015, she received PIJAC’s “Chairman’s Award of Excellence” in recognition of her tireless work on issues affecting the entire pet industry at the state and local levels across Connecticut.
“Nobody deserves this honor more than Peach,” said PIJAC President and CEO Mike Bober. “We at PIJAC benefit from her experience and dedication on a daily basis, and her positive influence can be seen throughout the responsible pet industry.”

By Laura “Peach” ReidFor the last several years, Connecticut legislators have been working to protect pets and consumers from unethical actors in the companion animal industry trade.
