Corrected Catch Histories and Logbook Accuracy for Billfishes (Isiophoridae) in the Hawaii-based Longline Fishery

Description: From abstract: This paper presents corrected catch histories, standardized catch rates, and evaluations of the accuracy of federally mandated commercial logbooks for billfishes taken as incidental catch by the Hawaii-based longline fishery. The study was conducted because billfish misidentifications in logbooks caused by similarities in body size, shape, and coloration have long represented a major challenge in monitoring this fishery.

Comprehensive Evaluation of Shallow Reef Fish Populations at French Frigate Shoals and Midway Atoll, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (1992/93,1995-2000)

Description: From abstract: This document represents the sixth and last of a series of Honolulu Laboratory reports providing estimates of shallow reef fish population densities based on diver-surveys conducted at roughly annual intervals at two sites (French Frigate Shoals (FFS) and Midway Atoll (Midway) in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI)). The purpose of the time series has been to develop the capability to characterize the standing stock densities of shallow reef fishes, as one potentially important component of the monk seal forage base with precision sufficient to detect twofold changes over a decadal time scale when sampled at a yearly frequency.

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.
