When can you buy whale products?
While it is still illegal in Hawaii to sell whale products, the state government has started to allow the purchase of whale meat products.
In addition to offering a permit to the public to purchase whale meat, the new law allows the sale of whale products to those who can prove they have the proper permits.
This means you can get whale meat on the streets, on the ocean and even in your local convenience store.
According to a press release from the state, the law “allows the consumption of whale and dolphin products on a commercial basis.
It also allows for the sale to the general public of whale meats and seafood.”
The law is only a temporary measure until the state and local governments can work out a long-term solution for the problem of illegal whale and other whale and shark consumption.
While Hawaii has not been the first place to have laws regarding whale and whale products and consumption, the ban in Hawaii has been the most controversial in recent times.
On February 4, 2017, a group of scientists, activists and environmentalists, led by a whale researcher named Dr. David Seaton, wrote a letter to the governor of Hawaii, David Heineman, and the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) arguing that there was enough scientific evidence to support the legal ban.
The letter was signed by Dr. Seaton’s wife, Jennifer, and several others.
It was signed in the wake of a court decision in September 2017 in which the State of Hawaii held a hearing to address the ban on the public sale of illegal products.
The ruling states that while the ban “is intended to protect the health of Hawaiians, it also has a significant environmental impact.”
The ban in question, as originally written, was a loophole that allowed the state to ban products such as whale meat and fish, which were legally sold to the people of Hawaii.
Under the law, the DNR could sell whale and/or dolphin products to anyone who applied for a permit.
But the ban has led to controversy since it was enacted in 2018.
In 2017, the Department also had to change its policy regarding whale products in an effort to address concerns over the ban.
In an interview with Hawaii News Now, DNR Commissioner Mike Cauley acknowledged the “ongoing uncertainty” in the ban’s enforcement, but said the department will continue to work with state and county governments to make the legal product market more open and accessible to the broader public.
