8 Asians

A tradition in Hawaii is to eat tuna at New Year’s for luck. A tradition brought over by immigrant Japanese fisherman, bigeye tuna was substituted for the traditional tai, or sea bream, which doesn’t occur locally. This year, Hawaiians are worried about their Holiday Tuna supply won’t be available as fisherman are expected to hit the federally regulated quota in the first or second week of December. The article cites Clarence Gonsalves, who said that he has never had a New Year’s without tuna.  Bigeye tuna has been overfished to the point where Hawaiians are trying large experimental tuna farms.
