Things got a little fishy around here yesterday. Our morning began at 5:30 a.m. when we were picked up by a bus and driven out to the Honolulu Fish Auction to see the bidding in action.
We were all instructed to wear close-toed shoes and though I wore my red TOMS, I opted to wear my shoes inside of a pair of giant rubber boots because I was afraid the fabric would soak up the fishy water around the pier and inside the fish market. They were quite snazzy!
When we arrived, we were greeted by the program manager of the Hawaii Seafood Council who took our group on a tour and explained a bit more about the fishing and auction process.
