More than 70 divers and spearfishers from around the state will attempt to capture as many roi (peacock groupers), to’au (blacktail snappers) and ta’ape (blue-line snapper) as they can during the annual Roi Roundup event taking place this Sunday, August 15, 2010. 

A single invasive roi can eat up to 146 indigineous reef fish each year and carry a high risk of ciguatera toxin that could cause illness in humans.  The event starts at 10 a.m. at the Hard Rock Cafe in Lahaina with the fish weigh-in happening at 11 a.m.   Trophies will be presented for Most Fish, Largest Fish and Smallest Fish.  The event is scheduled to conclude at 3 p.m.

The event includes remarks by Maui Mayor Charmaine Tavares, education stations, and a Barnes & Noble Book fair with free entertainment by Leokane Pryor and Isaac Lazo.
