The Hawaii Seafood Buyers’ Guide is comprised
of two sections: Introduction and Species Descrip-
tions. The introduction and each of the 16 species
descriptions are separate pages of this Guide. The
Introduction provides summary information and
tabular data for four major groups of Hawaii’s fish
species: 1) Tuna; 2) Billfish; 3) Other Open Ocean
Species; and, 4) Bottomfish. The Introduction is
intended as a technical reference for buyers’
information, including seasonal availability, shelf life, product forms and yields, suggested quantities of
purchase and methods of preparation of the major species. The Species Descriptions provide more
popularized background information about biology, availability, fishing methods, catch distribution,
substitution potential, quality control, color, taste, texture, and preparation for 16 major species. The
Species Descriptions include photographs of each species in whole and filleted forms, and of selected
species in food preparations. Seafood buyers could prepare their own point-of-sale promotional
material by combining information from the Species Descriptions with new or existing photographs.
Negatives of the photographs contained in the Buyers’ Guide are available for this purpose.
