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.
This page was developed from the National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring website--an intranet site as yet not generally available to the public. The data are from a report on fishes of Kalaupapa National Historical Park dated 7 March 2007.
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.
This webpage, "Fishes of Kalaupapa National Historical Park," is simply an alphabetical list of the scientific names of fishes recorded from waters in and near the park. Each fish name is linked (click on the name) to its individual Family. Within the Family, if a fish is illustrated click on the thumbnail image to link to the large photograph page..
There are also indexes to both Hawaiian and English common names of at least the fish families. Names in these indexes are linked to the Family pages (click on the name). Macrons are not included over the Hawaiian names since their transmission becomes garbled with different internet browsers.
This fish page is a work in progress. More illustrations will be added. Eventually it will be replaced by the National Park Service's Inventory and Monitoring website with live links to bibliographic sources for the records, and in some cases species distribution maps.
The principal source of the fishes listed here is from:
Names of fishes listed here are based upon John Randall, 2007, Reef and Shore Fishes of the Hawaiian Islands. University of Hawaii Press.
Fish Base is an excellent website for detailed information about fishes worldwide.Learn more about the NPSpecies Inventorying and Monitoring Program.
