Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, 2023: MHI Onaga Reproductive Characteristics Admin Report,

Item Identification

Title: MHI Onaga Reproductive Characteristics Admin Report
Status: On Going
Creation Date: 2018

The reproductive characteristics of the Longtail Snapper, Etelis coruscans — known locally in Hawaii as ‘Onaga’, — was last assessed in 1989, therefore updated information is needed for improving its stock assessment and management in the bottomfish fishery of the Main Hawaiian Islands (MHI). Specimens were collected during research cruises and either donated by individual fishers or purchased from markets during 2007-2008 and 2012-2017. These samples were supplemented with additional monthly samples beginning in April 2019.


The purpose of this project was to provide updated length-at-maturity information for Onaga (Etelis coruscans) in the Main Hawaiian Islands. The secondary purpose of this project was to provide an in-depth look into the methodology used to construct length-at-maturity curves with different combinations of reproductive information.
