This atlas summarizes data on the crustaceans, molluscs, and fishes caught in a resource survey of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands from October 1976 to September 1981. The geographical and depth distributions, size range, and the type of gear used to catch all of the crustaceans, molluscs, and fishes are tabulated. Species accounts of 37 crustaceans, molluscs, and fishes of commercial potential are presented. The geography, oceanography, and climate of the region are reviewed. (PDF file… 
Biology and Management of Deepwater Snappers of the Hawaiian Archipelago
TLDR
Commercial and recreational deepwater (100-400 m) bottom-fishing in Hawaii targets a multispecies group of lutjanid snappers, and recent analysis of commercial fishery data indicates that some of the species may be overexploited.
The Hawaiian Archipelago
The Hawaiian Archipelago is one of the largest and most isolated island chains in the world, and its marine ecosystems are well-studied. Research on Hawaiian mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) began
Tosanoides obama, a new basslet (Perciformes, Percoidei, Serranidae) from deep coral reefs in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
Abstract The new species Tosanoides obama is described from two specimens collected at a depth of 90–92 m off Kure Atoll and Pearl and Hermes Atoll, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. It differs from the
Archipelago-wide episodic recruitment of the file fish Pervagor spilosoma in the Hawaiian Islands as revealed in long-term records

TLDR
The results of two previously published studies and this one show that the last heavy recruitment occurred throughout the Hawaiian Island chain in the period from 1982–1988, which suggests that the pattern of recruitment in this species was not solely due to a particular pattern of ocean circulation.
Fisheries and Marine Resources of Hawaii and the U.S.-associated Pacific Islands: An Introduction
The fisheries of Hawaii and other U.S.-associated islands in the Pacific Ocean are characterized by high diversity, both in the species exploited and the human cultures that exploit them. The
Feeding Ecology of Deepwater Lutjanid Snappers at Penguin Bank, Hawaii
TLDR
Line fishing in this study simultaneously collected six of the seven lutjanid species that commonly occur in the major deepwater snapper fishery at Penguin Bank, Hawaii, and foundRegurgitation of gut contents seemed to be reduced when fish were retrieved at a rate that was slower than used in commercial practice but rapid enough to prevent death or morbidity while hooked.
Identification of Habitat of Juvenile Snappers in Hawaii
  • Environmental Science
  • 2004
Deepwater snappers have high commercial and recreational value throughout the tropics, and their fisheries and species biology have been widely studied. However, little is known about the ecology of
Deepwater marine protected areas of the main Hawaiian Islands: Establishing baselines for commercially valuable bottomfish populations
This study provides the first comprehensive fishery-independent baseline assessment of commercially important deepwater bottomfish populations across the main Hawaiian Islands. Differences in
An Assessment of Mobile Predator Populations along Shallow and Mesophotic Depth Gradients in the Hawaiian Archipelago
TLDR
Stereo-video extends the depth range of current roving predator surveys in a more robust manner than was previously available, and appears to be well-suited for large-scale roving predators work in the Hawaiian Archipelago.
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.

VERTICAL ZONATION OF INSHORE FISHES IN THE UPPER WATER LAYERS OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
TLDR
Preliminary information suggests that the differentiation of the fish fauna at deeper levels is far more gradual, and that there is still a considerable number of species to at least half a mile in depth.

Ecological Significance of a Drifting Object to Pelagic Fishes
TLDR
Another hypothesis was suggested: floating objects are cleaning stations, where pelagic fishes have their parasites removed by other fish, and these symbiotic cleaning associations are well documented for fishes in inshore waters.
