Title: Hapu'upu'u Reproductive Biology Data
Status: In Work
Abstract:

Unique specimen "IDNumber" for over 750 specimens of Hawaiian grouper (hapu'upu'u, Hyporthodus quernus; family Epinephelidae) are included in this dataset. Each specimen has the following information associated with it: standard body length, body weight, and gonad weight metrics, date of collection, and both macroscopic & microscopic sexual identities and sexual maturation states (the latter based on E. DeMartini's examination of histological slides prepared by several outside contractors (Pathology Labs of Queen's Hospital & John Burns Medical School). All specimens were collected by hydraulic handlines from either NOAA research vessels or commercial bottomfish boats.

Purpose:

Research.

Alternate Start As Of Info: D
Description:

The specimens were collected during one of 3 periods (by source):

1978-1981 (Townsend Cromwell; archived data provided by Alan Everson, formerly NOAA Honolulu Lab, now PIRO);

1992-1993 (Townsend Cromwell; archived data of E. DeMartini, PIFSC); and

2005-2008 (primarily NWHI commercial fishing vessels; secondarily the NOAA vessel Oscar Elton Sette.

The data set is technically considered continuing, there will be another database on hapu'upu'u age-growth that includes many of the same specimen numbers. The 2 databases could always be merged by unique hapu'upu'u specimen number in the future if someone wished to do so.
