Common name: Banggai cardinalfish (E). Conservation status: This species has been proposed for listing as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List due to its extremely limited distribution, low fecundity, and heavy exploitation by aquarium fish collectors. Identification: Easily recognized from the approximately 270 other species in the family Apogonidae by its tasseled first dorsal fin, elongate anal and second dorsal fin rays, deeply forked caudal fin and colour pattern consisting of three… Expand
Reproductive Ecology of Pterapogon kauderni, an Endemic Apogonid from Indonesia with Direct Development
Pterapogon kauderni has a lunar reproductive cycle, with a major spawning peak during full moon and a smaller peak during the last quarter, and one population, which is located in a site with distinct environmental conditions and which was sampled a year earlier, shows a different reproductive pattern.

Captive Breeding of Banggai Cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni (Koumans, 1933) for Exit of IUCN Red List
Assessment of the reproduction of Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni in captive conditions with artificial features for retinue natural resources of this fish finds live food enriched with probiotic and other additives such as omega 3 proximate affects the survival and reproduction of this species.

Population structure in Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, a coral reef species lacking a pelagic larval phase
Small sample sizes and limited genetic variability in P. kauderni prevented a definitive conclusion, but further studies using larger samples and more rapidly evolving molecular markers may provide enough power to conclusively test the hypotheses. Expand

Unmonitored trade in marine ornamental fishes: the case of Indonesia’s Banggai cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni)
It is proposed that long-term monitoring is needed to safeguard Banggai cardinalfish populations and to serve as a much-needed example for monitoring and managing other marine ornamental fishes at risk of over-exploitation. Expand
The Banggai cardinalfish: An overview of management and conservation initiatives
The Banggai cardinalfish Pterapogon kauderni, with an unusual reproductive cycle (paternal mouthbrooder, no pelagic phase), has potential as a “flag-ship” species to drive conservation efforts in volving local stakeholders, and the multi­stakeholder multi­year BangGai Cardinal Fish Action Plan drawn up in 2007 covers Conservation, Management and Trade.
