Abstract: ABSTRACT: Depths between 150 and 400 m off Oahu, Hawaii, were surveyed
by submarine, gill nets, and traps. Depth of capture or observations and other
data are given for 47 species of fishes and 20 species of decapod Crustacea. Of
these species, 10 fishes and five crustaceans are either undescribed or new records
for Hawaii. Four other fishes collected and several others observed from the submarine
are probably undescribed or unrecorded species. A large proportion of
both the total number of species collected and of the new forms were taken by
gill net. The gill nets are able to sample steep, rocky bottoms and obtain types of
organisms inaccessible to other types of gear, particularly bottom trawls.
