Kona Kampachi returns to market

Kona Blue Water Farms on Thursday announced its Kona Kampachi will return to the market on 18 July.

This marks the first time kampachi, a yellowtail relative, will be available since November 2009, when production was halted so that offshore pens could be reconfigured.

Now, an additional quarter of a million fish have been stocked to the offshore pens. These fish have almost reacheda harvest size of 4 pounds. As the fish continue to grow, Kona Blue expects to increase its harvest to a target of 25,000 pounds of fish per week by the end of the year.

"The wait is over. We are thrilled to be back," said Neil Sims, co-founder and VP of research."This new net pen configuration allows us to continue to fulfill the promise we made to our customers: To set new standards in providing delicious, sustainable, healthful fish. We appreciate our customers' patience during the lull in Kona Kampachi supplies."
