Abstract: In a distributional study of the black sea cucumbers,
Holothuria atra (Jager) and H. leucospilota
(Brandt), at Rongelap Atoll (Fig. 1)
the beaches of most of the larger islets were
surveyed during September 1959, March 1961,
and September 1961. Estimates of abundance
and size were made, and observations on temperature
tolerance, predation, asexual reproduction
by fission, and some other ecological aspects
were considered.
