Rick Gaffney was born and raised in Hawaii and has fished recreationally, as a charter captain, and commercially, in the Hawaiian Islands and around the Pacific, for 60 years. He has served on numerous fishery advisory bodies including WESPAC, the Marine Protected Areas Federally Advisory Commission, the West Hawaii Fishery Council and the Western and Central Pacific Fishery Commission.
