Jordan's Journal with Wai'anae Fisherman Carl Jellings

Episode 19 - Carl Jellings from Jo Jordan on Vimeo.

On the next episode of "Jordan’s Jordan", the Representative will sit down with Wai’anae fisherman Carl Jellings Sr. to talk about ocean resources management on the Wai’anae coast and the impacts of commercial tourism on the fishing industry. Jellings has been fishing on the Wai’anae coast since the 60’s and has been a licensed fisherman since 1978. For years he has dedicated his time to finding ways for commercial tourism boats and fishermen to coexist. 

Jordan and Jellings also discussed House Bill 2682, which is awaiting the Governor’s signature. Introduced by Rep. Jordan, the bill would authorize the Department of Land and Natural Resources to regulate the commercial activities that operate out of private marinas and use state waters or marine resources. Currently DLNR can only regulate the number of permits for commercial activities in state run harbors and marinas.

You can also catch the next airing of the show on Monday, June 25, 2012, 1 p.m. on ‘Olelo 54. Also, don’t forget to “like” Rep. Jordan’s Facebook page here.
