More fishes, more prices, 1918.

FISH PRICES SET ONCE AGAIN.

For the benefit of the public, printed below is the chart of the prices of the many fishes being sold, by the orders of the Food Administrator [Lunahooponopono o na Meaai], Child, whether it be at the market or somewhere else; each home is invited to keep this chart, so that they will not be fooled by the fish mongers.

With this establishing by the commission of this price chart of the fishes, it is acceptable to sell fish below the price, being that this is the top price when the fish is scarce; if there is an abundance, the prices will be decreased.

This chart of fish prices was decided through discussion of the Food Administration [komisina o na meaai] along with the people who sell fish and the fishermen; these prices will continue until the coming month of October.

Here below is the new chart of the price of fishes, compared with the old prices.
