I have ordered plants and fish via UPS and FedEx, but shipping can be costly. I do think there are some aquarium clubs nearby; did you check this out? They may not be on your island but it could be a start.
"Invasive species in your state"

I live about 50 feet or so away from THE Lake wilson, aka Wahiawa Reservoir. The salvinia molesta problem (or however you spell it) was absolutely TERRIBLE. It was really unbelievable.
