How to use this site. The initial page is a current list of scientific names, of fishes occurring within the park -- each name linked to a species by family. (Additional lists are included by common names or a list by Hawaiian names.) If illustrations are available, thumbnail pictures on the family list pages link to enlarged photos.
Or, you can browse pages of illustrations arranged by family. Holding your curser on the image will pop up the plant name. (There, clicking on any image jumps to the enlarged photo).
1. Sharks, morays, conger eels, halfbeaks

The NPS Inventorying and Monitoring site is a work in progress at this time. It is expected to be on line to the public in a few more years.
Fish Base is an excellent website for detailed information about fishes worldwide.Learn more about the NPSpecies Inventorying and Monitoring Program.
