Default Peacock Bass Visit Waikiki

The Hilton Hawaiian Village hotel in Waikiki has a beautiful collection of waterfalls and fish ponds. Exotic tropical fish in a rainbow of colors can be seen in the clear shallow water. Here in lies the problem.... there are way to many little fish in the ponds.

The hotel, with a special permit from the state, and working closely with the Hawaii Freshwater Fishing Association..... is stocking peacock bass in their fish ponds. Peacock bass feed almost exclusively on smaller fish so they are hoping to thin out the ponds population.

HFFA club members had great fun catching the peacock bass and transporting them to the HHV fish ponds. Bass fishermen among the guests at the hotel seemed to enjoy the show. "I didn't know they had peacock bass in Hawaii." The peacock bass seem to be enjoying their Waikiki vacation.
