HAWAIIAN MONK SEAL (Monachus schauinslandi) STOCK DEFINITION 1990 book GEOGRAPHIC RANGE Hawaiian monk seals are distributed throughout the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) in six main reproductive populations at French Frigate Shoals, Laysan Island, Lisianski Island, Pearl and Hermes Reef, Midway Atoll, and Kure Atoll.

The Hawaiian monk seal is given its scientific name, Monachus schauinslandi (changed to Neomonachus schauinslandi in ), after Dr. Schauinsland brought a seal skull back from Laysan Island in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. Laysan is the second largest single landmass in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, after Sand Island at Midway Atoll.

Laysan was created by coral growth and geologic upshift. The fringing reefs surrounding the island cover about acres ( km 2). Lake Laysan, the acres ( km 2), brown, hypersaline lake in the island's interior, has varied in depth over the decades.

The ancient Hawaiian name was "llio holo I ka uaua" meaning "dog that runs in rough water." The Hawaiian monk seal is one of the most endangered marine mammals in the world, and the rarest seal or sea lion in US waters.

Weighing between pounds ( kg) and feet ( m) in length, females are slightly larger than males. The Hawaiian monk seal is one of the most endangered seal species in the world.

The population overall has been declining for over six decades and current numbers are only about one-third of historic population levels. Importantly, however, the prol. sent data on fostering behavior of Hawaiian monk seals at Laysan Island and draw com-parisons with similar data from East Island, French Frigate Shoals (Boness, ; Job, ), where female density is greater.

The Hawiian monk seal is the second most endangered pinniped in the world, numbering. Two Hawaiian Monk Seal pups play in a shallow lagoon on a remote Northwest Hawaiian atoll.

Hawaiian monk seal mothers typically nurse their pups 5–7 weeks prior to weaning and leaving their pups on the natal island (Johanos et al., ). Since the late s and continuing to present time, both pre-weaned and weaned monk seal pups have suffered abnormally high mortality as a result of predation by Galapagos sharks (Carcharhinus Cited by: Tiger sharks, great white sharks, and Galapagos sharks are both predators of the Hawaiian monk seal.

The Hawaiian monk seal population was hunted to near extinction during commercial sealing expeditions in the midth century, and other opportunistic hunters further depeleted the surviving population during the late s and the early s, and the mnk seal was thought to be extinct by the early 20th century (Kenyon and Rice, ).
