Abstract
Specimens of Chaetodon miliaris collected in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, during a 15-month study appeared to be reproductively inactive and were smaller than were those from other Hawaiian study areas. Additionally, they lacked calanoid copepods in their diet, the main food consumed elsewhere. It is suggested that the absence of this food in their diet resulted in a dietary deficiency leading to poor growth and reproductive inactivity.
