Authors: Baldwin, Wayne J.
Issue Date: Apr-1984
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Baldwin WJ. 1984. A note on the occurrence of the gold spot herring, Herklotsichthys quadrimaculatus (Ruppell) in Hawaii. Pac Sci 38(2): 123-126.
Abstract: The occurrence of the gold spot herring, Herklotsichthys
quadrimaculatus, is reported for Hawaii from the islands of Oahu, Molokai, and
Lanai. This species was first collected in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, in 1975, and
appears to have largely replaced the Marquesan sardine, Sardin ella marquesensis,
introduced to Hawaii in the 1950s. Notes on the separation of the gold spot
herring from other Hawaiian clupeids are provided in addition to a comparison
of the Hawaiian specimens with specimens of gold spot herring from Red Sea
and tropical Pacific localities.
