Abstract: Habitat utilization curves were developed for life stages of three species of Hawaiian native stream fishes. The development of such curves is necessary for implementation of the Incremental Flow Instream Methodology (IFIM) in Hawaiian streams. Sufficient observations to develop usable curves were obtained for adult and juvenile Awaous stamineus, Sicyopterus stimpsoni, and Lentipes concolor. In addition, curves
were generated for hinana, undifferentiated new recruits from the marine zooplankton. Habitat parameters analyzed were mean water column velocity, depth, and substratum, using a modified Wentworth scale. Differences between species and life stages
are indicated.
