Honolulu's fish auction house visit with Hawaii Seafoods Council

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 11:42:00 +0000

In the heart of Honolulu Harbor , directly across from the container port, there’s a large, utilitarian, metal building adjacent to the docks at Pier 38 where the long line Tuna boats tie up. It’s five a.m., and we’re waiting outside for the 5:30 bell that announces the commencement of United Fishing Agency’s daily wholesale auction — it’s the only one of its kind between Tokyo and the East Coast. Buyers from fish markets, restaurants and distributors arrive in their oversized pick-ups. They chew the fat out in the parking lot and then start to amble in. They’re clad in bulky jackets, parkas, and hooded sweatshirts, which seems a bit strange, since it’s a balmy 71 degrees outside and the sun hasn’t even risen yet. The disconnect is quickly solved when it’s our turn to head inside, where it’s as cold as a winter day in Anchorage. While we wait for the bell to ring, we dodge frenetic forklifts shuttling iced crates bulging with freshly unloaded Big Eye Tuna, Swordfish, Wahoo, Marlin,
