Nearshore abundance of tuna pisces scombridae larvae in the hawaiian islands usa



Bulletin of Marine Science 29(1): 19-26



ISSN/ISBN: 0007-4977

Ichthyoplankton surveys of the nearshore waters of the Hawaiian Islands of Kauai, Oahu, and Maui [USA] and more intensive sampling at Kahe Point, Oahu, disclosed abundances of tuna [Thunnus albacares] (Scombridae) larvae as high as 441/1000 m3, and frequently 1 or 2 orders of magnitude higher than those typical of the Central Pacific Ocean. inter-station spatial variability was higher than 1 h temporal variability at a single station. Both the abundance of larvae and the variability increased toward shore. Leeward catches were significantly greater than windward. Large numbers of tuna larvae are probably upwelled along leeward coasts by wind-driven nearshore currents from horizontal strata containing even higher densities of larvae.
