The humphead wrasse, Cheilinus undulatus, is the largest living member of the family Labridae, with a maximum size exceeding 2 m and 190 kg. Its geographic range covers much of the Indo-Pacific. The species is not common, recorded maximum adult densities rarely exceeding 20 fish/10,000 m2. Small individuals are typically associated with high coral cover; larger fish are found mainly on outer or deep reefs, steep slopes and passes, singly or in small groups and seagrasses. However, for… 
Forehead Morphology of the Humphead Wrasse Cheilinus undulatus (Perciformes: Labridae) in Relation to Body Size
TLDR
There was a linear and positive correlation between body size and maximum angle of hump elevation for both sexes; males tended to have larger humps because they were larger in body size rather than because of sexual dimorphism for hump development.
Aggregation and spawning of the humphead wrasse Cheilinus undulatus (Pisces: Labridae): general aspects of spawning behaviour
TLDR
The humphead wrasse Cheilinus undulatus formed resident spawning aggregations daily after high tide at specific locations along the seaward edge of the Palau barrier reef for 6 years with no physical features distinguishing it from adjacent areas.
Assessment of humphead wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus), spawning aggregations and declaration of marine protected area as strategy for enhancement of wild stocks
TLDR
Assessment of the spawning aggregations of humphead wrasse in the province of Tawi-Tawi, Philippines indicated that the Baligtang Reef in Sipangkot and Tando Owak are major sources of spawners and management and enforcement plans have been developed and Bantay Dagat have been trained to protect the spawning aggregation sites.
Identification of nursery habitats for commercially valuable humphead wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus) and large groupers (Pisces: Serranidae) in Palau.
TLDR
Spatial management should prioritize habitats for conservation according to their value as essential nursery or spawning habitats for target species needing protection, including the humphead wrasse and the camouflage grouper.
Evaluation of the Humphead Wrasse, Cheilinus undulatus, in Shallow Water Habitats in Saipan Lagoon, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands1
Abstract: Visual census surveys utilizing a distance sampling approach were undertaken in Saipan Lagoon to determine the density of humphead wrasse (HHW) in four shallow water habitats, and compared
Phylogeography and Conservation Biogeography of the Humphead Wrasse, Cheilinus undulatus
TLDR
The general dearth of structure is consistent with population expansion, following an historical bottleneck and with high contemporary gene flow, and that Humphead wrasse is a metapopulation and that its conservation status depends on successful management of a sufficient but currently unknown number and distribution of populations across a multi-national network.
Gonadal development in a giant threatened reef fish, the humphead wrasse Cheilinus undulatus, and its relationship to international trade.
TLDR
In consideration of the threatened status of this species, management for C. undulatus capture and trade nationally and internationally are discussed with recommendations for ensuring sufficient spawning biomass in exploited populations and for sustainable trade.

Age structure and growth in a large teleost, Cheilinus undulatus, with a review of size distribution in labrid fishes
TLDR
Age-based demographic parameters were estimated from 164 individuals of the large teleost Cheilinus undulatus from NE Australia and of large labrid fishes demonstrates that they share a dynamic demography with fast indeterminate growth rates and relatively short life spans.
Monitoring and management of the humphead wrasse 'Cheilinus Undulatus'
TLDR
The core elements of a management system for humphead wrasse are discussed, making considerations about major fisheries management objectives, management measures, enforcement, monitoring and fisheries assessment.

TLDR
Development of a spatial model of grouper-habitat interactions was developed and grouper relative abundance was predictable among sites of the same habitat type separated by tens of kilometers; several grouper species showed consistent preferences for one type of habitat over another.
