Caranx ignobilis (Forsk.), the largest of the Indo-Pacific carangids, is a valued food fish from the East African coast to the Hawaiian Islands. The biology of this fish is being studied by one of us (F. W.), and it has been found that maturity is reached between 500 and 650 mm. standard length. 
New record of two Indo-Pacific reef fish, Caranx ignobilis and Naso annulatus , from the Galapagos Islands
The first records of Caranx ignobilis and Naso annulatus in the Galapagos Archipelago are reported based on several sightings from its northernmost island, Darwin. For C. ignobilis this alsoExpand
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
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
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
Spawning aggregations and reproductive behavior of reef fishes in the Gulf of California
The findings suggest the existence of undocumented spawning aggregations throughout the Tropical Eastern Pacific that sustain varied levels of fishing pressure and must be identified and protected in order to ensure the replenishment of fish populations. Expand
