In reality, the practice of hukilau was banned in Hawai‘i in the 1950s because of the enormous amount of fish and marine life that can be caught. When the National Park hosts its annual hukilau demonstration at Kioniele Cove, as it has done for 35 years, any fish caught are released back to the ocean.
