Use of a marine reserve in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii by the giant trevally, Caranx ignobilis
The protective function of the Coconut Island marine reserve for giant trevally is limited because the reserve is utilized by only a portion of the population, and even these fish regularly move outside of the refuge. Expand
Seriolina nigrofasciata (Ruppel, 1829), its fishery and biological aspects off south-west coast of India
The availability of mature and spent specimens all through the year implied that the blackbanded trevally Seriolina nigrofasciata has prolonged spawning period with a peak during the summer season (March-May) and a minor secondary peak in post-monsoon season (October to December). Expand
Seasonal and diel movements of giant trevally Caranx ignobilis at remote Hawaiian atolls : implications for the design of Marine protected areas
We need to understand the long-term movement patterns of coral reef top predators in order to design marine protected areas that will provide these animals with effective, long-term pro- tection. WeExpand
Feeding behaviour of the sawtooth barracuda, Sphyraena putnamae (Jordan and Seale, 1905) along the southeastern Arabian Sea, India
The juveniles of both sexes exhibited a significantly higher stomach fullness index compared with the adults, and a clear ontogenetic shift in the feeding pattern was observed, with only the crustaceans forming the diet in lower size class. Expand
An adaptive assessment and management toolkit for data-limited fisheries
An Adaptive assessment and management toolkit has been developed for data-limited fisheries and it is suggested that this toolkit should be used in combination with traditional fisheries management methods. Expand
The Ecology of Coral Reef Top Predators in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument
Ecological models suggest ecosystem processes may be most impacted by top predators through indirect effects of predation, and knowledge gaps are identified to guide future studies of top predators in the PMNM. Expand
Aspects of the biology of billfish (lstiophoridae) from the equatorial western Indian Ocean
A tuna longline survey of billfish was carried out in the equatorial western Indian Ocean during 1964-67, and the results of the gonad examination indicate that little spawning occurs in the area, and it is suggested that seasonal abundance of certain species is related to feeding. Expand
Behavioural interactions between the Carangidae (Pisces) and their prey on the fore‐reef slope of Aldabra, with notes on other predators
Observations of the behavioural interactions of carangids with their prey on the forereef slope of Aldabra Atoll suggest that it provides a mechanism whereby small fish can approach and exploit the disorientation of prey during hunting episodes. Expand


Sexual Colour Differences in Caranx ignobilis (Forsk.)
Caranx ignobilis (Forsk.), the largest of the Indo-Pacific carangids, is a valued food fish from the East African coast to the Hawaiian Islands and it has been found that maturity is reached between 500 and 650 mm. standard length. Expand
