Abstract: Thirty new records of fishes are reported from Johnston Atoll.
Three are Hawaiian endemics, six are widespread Indo-Pacific species that reach
Johnston but not Hawaii, and the remainder are widespread species that have
been recorded from Hawaii and elsewhere in the Pacific. The number of fish
species recorded from Johnston is raised to 301. The attenuated nature of
Johnston's fish fauna may be due to several factors, including isolation, lack of
habitat area and diversity, and glacioeustatic extinctions.
