14C Marine Reservoir Variability in Herbivores and Deposit-Feeding Gastropods from an Open Coastline, Papua New Guinea
Herbivorous and deposit-feeding gastropods are a major component of archaeological shell middens worldwide. They provide a wealth of information about subsistence, economy, environment, and climate,
Life history notes of the critically endangered dwarf sawfish, Pristis clavata, Garman 1906 from the Kimberley region of Western Australia
Observations of sexual maturity and annuli present on vertebrae suggest that the estuarine waters of at least the Fitzroy River act as a nursery for the dwarf sawfish, where immature individuals may remain for at least 3 years.
Three unrecorded marine fish species from Korean waters
Three marine fish species are recorded for the first time from Korean waters: a molid, bramid and carangid, which is characterized by a wedge-shaped body and truncated clavus and Carangoides dinema by a row of black blotches.
Two New Indo-Pacific Sand Lances of the Genus Ammodytoides (Perciformes: Ammodytidae)1
Two new sand lance species are described from the D'Entrecasteaux Islands, Papua New Guinea and the Chagos Archipelago, and a key is provided for the eight known species of Ammodytoides.
Focal Benthic Mollusks (Mollusca: Bivalvia and Gastropoda) of Selected Sites in Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park, Palawan, Philippines
To fully assess the abundance of focal mollusks, permanent transects should be established in the same seven sites but in shallow reef flat of about 2 m deep, in the lagoon and in the intertidal of North and South Islets where species composition, density and growth could be monitored on an annual basis.
Two new species of ancyrocephalid monogeneans from Lethrinus rubrioperculatus Sato (Perciformes: Lethrinidae) off New Caledonia, with the proposal of Lethrinitrema n. g.
Two new species of Lethrinitrema are described from the fish Lethrinus rubrioperculatus Sato collected off New Caledonia, South Pacific, characterised by having two pyriform haptoral reservoirs and ventral anchors with lateral grooves.
Five New Indo-Pacific Lizardfishes of the Genus Synodus (Aulopiformes: Synodontidae)
The following 5 new species of lizardfishes of the genus Synodus are described: S. fasciapelvicus, 1 market specimen, Lombok, Indonesia and 2 from 26-29 m in the Philippines; S. isolatus, 9 specimens
Aspects of the biology of elasmobranchs in a subtropical embayment in Western Australia and of chondrichthyan fisheries in Indonesia
The hypothesis that the spatial and food resources in the nearshore waters of a subtropical embayment in Western Australia (Shark Bay) will be partitioned within and amongst the main elasmobranch species that occur in that large water body is tested.

Age, growth and reproductive biology of diamond-shaped squid Thysanoteuthis rhombus (Oegopsida : Thysanoteuthidae)
It is suggested that T rhombus is an intermittent spawner with multiple filling and evacuation of oviducts, i.e. living in pairs consisting of a male and female, is reproduction and is optimal given the low density of T Rhombus populations and low active movement of squids.
A review of the genus Harpiosquilla (Crustacea, Stomatopoda) with descriptions of three new species

Behavior and systematics of cephalopods from Lizard Island, Australia, based on color and body patterns
Based on observations of live animals and a systematic evaluation of preserved specimens, the presence of Octopus ornatus is reported in Australian waters for the first time and the elevation of the subgenus Metasepia to generic status is confirmed.
