Abstract: Palauans have names for most fishes of importance to them. Three
hundred thirty-six vernacular fish names and their 312 scientific equivalents are listed.
Palauan names show little similarity to Yapese and Guamanian names. Different
native names exist for different life stages and sexes of many fishes, and some variation
in names occurs between northern and southern Palau. Earlier publications of
Palauan fish names are discussed.
