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.
