"Are you ready to see the future?" Vinny Allocca calls out gleefully, his voice rising from the sun-dappled surface of the Hawaiian sea. Allocca has timed his question perfectly. He´s caught me midstride off the deck of the Ho´Okupu, a 32-foot commercial workhorse that belongs to his employer, Randy Cates, a fisherman turned "fish farmer." My only possible answer to Allocca´s question is the affirmative ker-plunk of my scuba fins hitting the water.
