Dear Fishmonger,

You may not want to believe everything you read on the web. Kona Blue has been planning to expand to Mexico, but we are not moving there. We still intend to stay in Kona, run our hatchery, and provide research and biological support to our offshore partners, and sell the fish they grow.

And we have not ceased production ... we just stocked 250,000 fish offshore in Kona over the last few months. But we do have a gap in harvest supplies, between December and the coming spring. Sorry.

Thanks for the opportunity to clarify any potential misunderstandings.

Aloha,
Neil Anthony Sims
CEO, Kona Blue
