Abstract This study provides the first detailed description of the diet of the Hawaiian monk seal, Monachus schauinslandi. A total of 940 fecal and regurgitate samples were collected from the beaches of five islands in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) between 1991 and 1994. Some samples were collected from known ages and sexes of seals. Prey were identified from all available hard parts and identified to the lowest possible taxa. Teleosts were the most represented prey (78.6%) followed… Expand
Diet of the Monk Seal (Monachus monachus) in Greek Waters
TLDR
Exploratory multivariate analysis (redundancy analysis [RDA] indicated weakly significant seasonal, spatial, and interannual variation in diet and also suggested a relationship between diet composition and cause of death. Expand
Dietary comparison of two Hawaiian monk seal populations: the role of diet as a driver of divergent population trends
TLDR
Results indicate that MHI and NWHI seals eat similar diets; however, an incongruity in body conditions of seals between regions indicates a possible difference in intra- or inter-specific competition, prey availability, and quality. Expand
Abundance of the Hawaiian monk seal in the main Hawaiian Islands
Most of the extant circa 1400 Hawaiian monk seals Monachus schauinslandi live in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI). However, an increasing number of sightings and births have recently occurredExpand
Recovery of the Hawaiian Monk Seal (Monachus schauinslandi): A Review of Conservation Efforts, 1972 to 2010, and Thoughts for the Future
The Hawaiian monk seal is one of the world’s rarest marine mammal species and is listed as depleted, endangered, and critically endangered based on national and international criteria. Although itsExpand
IDENTIFYING DIURNAL FORAGING HABITAT OF ENDANGERED HAWAIIAN MONK SEALS USING A SEAL-MOUNTED VIDEO CAMERA
The Hawaiian monk seal (Monachus schauinslandi) is thought to be a foraging generalist, preying on numerous species in diverse habitats of the subtropical Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. At the atollExpand
FORAGING OF JUVENILE MONK SEALS AT FRENCH FRIGATE SHOALS, HAWAII
TLDR
Extensive use of sand communities by young seals may be the strongest link yet identified between juvenile survivorship and oceanographic dynamics. Expand
Monk Seals: Monachus monachus, M. tropicalis, and M. schauinslandi
TLDR
Both extant monk seal species consume a highly diverse diet of diurnally and nocturnally active fish, octopus, squid, and lobster, and have a broad prey base of at least 40 species. Expand
HAWAIIAN MONK SEALS (MONACHUS SCHAUINSLANDI) FORAGING IN DEEP‐WATER CORAL BEDS
TLDR
Movements and diving patterns of seals studied at French Frigate Shoals (FFS) Atoll indicated two areas where five males out of 33 instrumented seals dove deep enough to encounter commercially sought deep-water corals, supporting the notion that seals were selecting the areas with corals as forage habitat. Expand
Foraging interaction between monk seals and large predatory fish in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
TLDR
The jacks Caranx ignobilis and Seriola dumerili were the most success- ful at obtaining prey items flushed from cover by the seals, but carcharhinid sharks were also seen competing for prey. Expand
Movements of monk seals relative to ecological depth zones in the lower Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
In the 1990s, adult male and female monk seals (n = 24) at French Frigate Shoals were fitted with satellite tags and their activity monitored (median 87 days). The distribution of their movements wasExpand
