Author: Hida, Thomas S.; Morris, Robert A.

Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Hida TS, Morris RA. 1963. Preliminary report on the Marquesan sardine, Harengula vittata, in Hawaii. Pac Sci 17(4): 431-437.
Abstract: The Marquesan sardine, Harengula vittata,
was introduced to Hawaiian waters in eight
plantings from 1955 through 1959 by the Bureau
of Commercial Fisheries in an attempt to
establish this species as a supplementary bait
fish for skipjack fishing. The details of the first
seven introductions have been reported by
Murphy (1960) and the eighth by Brock (1960).
The eighth introduction comprised an estimated
4,000 sardines ranging from 7.0 to 9.4 cm in
standard length and averaging 8.2 cm. This
brought the estimated total number of sardines
introduced to Hawaii to 144,000. All of the
releases have been made around the island of
Oahu (Fig. 1).
