Fishery Interaction Between the Tuna Lonline and Other Pelagic Fisheries in Hawaii

Description: Abstract: The Hawaii pelagic surface fisheries and more recently the longline fisheries have grown dramatically. As a result, competition between fisheries on the fishing grounds and in the marketplace has also increased. Physical conflicts between vessels and claims of decreased fishing success by surface (troll and handline) fishermen led to the enactment of Federal regulations limiting the number of domestic longline vessels and the areas in which they can operate. The scientific evidence of biological or economic fishery interaction between longline and small-vessel fishermen is limited but suggests that intense longline fishing near the Hawaiian Islands has the potential to affect catch rates in other Hawaii fisheries. Better data collection and more research are needed to document fishery interaction and to improve fishery management.

The Hawaiian Monk Seal and Green Turtle at Pearl and Hermes Reef, 1990 and 1991

Description: This report presents data collected from the observational studies on Hawaiian monk seals and green turtles at Pearl and Hermes Reef in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. The data presented was taken on 9-8 of June 1990 and 1 August to 13 September 1991. The data collected was limited to objectives conducting atoll-wide seal censuses, resighting tagged seals, tagging weaned pups, and surveying and destroying debris capable of entangling wildlife. Additionally, efforts in 1991 included retagging seals, tagging unknown-age seals, weighing and measuring immature seals, and bleach-marking seals for ID purposes. Also, interatoll movement, survival, injuries, and entanglement of seals were monitored, seal scats and spews were collected, turtles were tagged, and previously tagged turtles were resighted.

The Hawaiian Monk Seal at French Frigate Shoals, 1988-89

Description: This report is based on an observational study on the Hawaiian monk seal, located at French Frigate Shoals in the Hawaiian Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Study took place from April 4th to August 31st 1988 and from March 25th to September 4th 1989. Data was made to conduct atoll-wide beach censuses of monk seals to assess productivity, survival, movements between atolls and islands, and population structure and distribution; furthermore, the study was made to monitor reproduction rates, movement between islands, tagging weaned pups, record injuries and deaths, perform necropsies, and catalogue and destroy debris capable of entangling wildlife.
