Structured Flotsam as Fish Aggregating Devices

Description: Abstract: A modern adaptation of an old fishing technique is gaining recognition in the Pacific and elsewhere as an effective means to increase fishing productivity in the open sea. The use of man-made, free-floating, and anchored floating devices to aggregate pelagic fishes for subsistence, recreational and commercial fishing has increased markedly in recent years; estimates of deployed and planned units exceed 1,000. These devices have been anchored in depths ranging from several hundred to several thousand fathoms. This report reviews the development and present use of fish aggregating devices in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

An Annotated Bibliography of the Ecology of the Co-Occurring Tunas (Katsuwonus pelomis, Thunnus albacares) and Dolphins (Stenella attenuata, Stenella longirostris and Delphinus delphus) in the Easter Tropical Pacific

Description: From introduction: This bibliography was compiled to provide a source of information on the ecology of the co-occurring tunas and dolphins in the Eastern Tropical Pacific (ETP). While some of the articles give information concerning distribution and ecology of tunas and dolphins in other geographic areas, the primary focus is on the tunas and dolphins that occur together in the ETP.

Possible Effects of Sampling Biases on Reproduction Rate Estimates for Dolphins in the Eastern Tropical Pacific

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this report is to present a sensitivity analysis on the effects that biased sampling of young calves and lactating females would have on the various estimated life history parameters. This sensitivity analysis provides one measure of reliability of the various estimates. Also, where inconsistencies in the estimates can be identified, this analysis provides one means for evaluating which estimates are likely in error.

Summary of Environmental and Fishing Information on Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands : A Review of the Plankton Communities and Fishery Resources

Description: From introduction: The Resource Assessment Investigation of the Mariana Archipelago (RAIOMA) Program is a study by the Honolulu Laboratory, conducted in close cooperation with the Governments of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and by University of Guam Marine Laboratory. The investigation will address the problem of determining the potential for development of crustacean, bottom fish, seamount groundfish, benthopelagic, and pelagic resources over the inner and outer shelves, shelf edge, reefs, and slope zones of these islands and adjacent seamounts.This document provides a comprehensive overview of the environmental and fishery information that has been published to date for the benefit of RAIOMA investigators currently involved in the field survey and resource assessment.

The Hawaiian Monk Seal and Green Turtle on Necker Island, 1983

Description: Abstract: Between 24 July and 6 August 1983, a two-person National Marine Fisheries Service field camp examined the Hawaiian monk seal, Monachus schauinslandi, and green turtle, Chelonia mydas, populations of Necker Island. Forty-three seals were identified, photographic records for seal identification were made, and 21 animals were bleach marked. Of three pups at Necker, only one weaned during the study period and was tagged. A pregnant femals was found dead and a necropsy was performed. Eighty-eight turtle observations included feeding (59), basking (18), and swimming (11) sightings. Four turtles were individually identified; three of these were flipper-tagged.
