Dennis & Luana started out in 1993 with Waiehu Fish Farm which became Hawaii’s largest indoor tropical fish hatchery specializing in ornamental fish for the aquarium trade. In 1996, they opened the original “Fish Shack” on Lower Main in Wailuku. In 2002, they moved into a 5000 sq ft building next door.

>Having made the decision to move entirely into the pond market, they located and moved into their new outdoor location at 70B Lono Ave. in Kahului in March of 2008.

This newest venture is primarily focused on servicing commercial accounts which include hotels, landscape businesses, pool builders, etc.

Waiehu Fish Farm/The Fish Shack celebrates it’s 15th year in business on Maui.
