This report has been sponsored by the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center and provides the
results of recent research efforts to ascertain the habitat use and foraging ecology of Hawaiian
monk seals in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI). This work is a part of a research
project involving a synthesis of all data available on the foraging behavior of Hawaiian monk
seals in the NWHI. Subsequent publications of these results will involve a more thorough
comparative analysis and interpretation of variation in individual and colony behaviors relative
to variation in biotic and abiotic characteristics of marine habitats throughout the NWHI marine
ecosystem.

1. Introduction
         The Hawaiian monk seal (Monachus schauinslandi) is endemic to the Hawaiian Island
Archipelago with six principal colonies in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) and reefs
of the archipelago. The species was designated as Endangered in 1976 under the Endangered
Species Act of 1973 (ESA) following declines of 50% from the late 1950s. Overall, numbers
declined about 11% annually from 1989 through the mid-1990s, owing to low birth rates and
poor survival of neonates and juveniles from a variety of known and unknown causes (e.g.,
Gilmartin and Eberhardt, 1995; Antonelis and Ragen, 1997; Craig and Ragen, 1999). The
Hawaiian monk seal metapopulation now numbers 1,300 to 1,400 with colonies at six isolated
sites in the NWHI and small but increasing numbers at the main Hawaiian Islands (Ragen and
Lavigne, 1999; Baker and Johanos, 2004). Here we report the results of studies conducted at
Laysan Island1 (25°46’N, 171°44’W; Figures 1, 2), the second largest colony at 250-300 seals,
from October 2001 through September 2002 to define the general geographic and vertical marine
habitats used by seals when foraging.

  Laysan Island is approximately 1,400 km northwest of Honolulu and about 215 km southeast of the nearest
neighboring colony of monk seals at Lisianski Island. The coral sand island is the top of a submerged volcanic peak
and has only a relatively small surrounding coral reef habitat (ca 145,000 acres) with the distance to a surrounding
fringing reef of 100 to 500 m. Beyond the reef, water depth increases gradually for about 8 km and then steeply to
3000 m or more (Ely and Clapp, 1973; http://www.hawaiireef.noaa.gov, accessed Nov. 2002).

2. Methods
Capture and restraint

        We captured 30 Hawaiian monk seals at Laysan Island (25 ' N, 171 'W) between 6
and 17 October 2001with a hoop net, physically restrained (Fig. 3), and then chemically sedated
them with an intravenous (extradural vein) injection of diazepam (approximate dosage 0.11
mg/kg; Tables 1 & 2). Sedation was reversed with 0.25 mg flumazenil in one seal (TM24, a
male weaned pup) when all procedures were completed (20 mins post-diazepam injection) to
speed the animal’s recovery and return to water owing to warm ambient air temperatures. Three
seals (adult males TJ58 and TZ56, and one adult female TJ58) were given a precautionary
intramuscular injection of atropine sulfate in response to a slight decline (but still within normal
range) in heart rate, body temperature, or both.

Biomedical sampling

       Within 2 to 4 minutes of intravenous injection of diazepam, we collected blood, tissue
(blubber and skin), fecal and microbiological swab (ocular, nasal, oral, genital, rectal) samples.
We took measurements of standard length and axillary girth to within 0.5 cm.

              (note satellite transmitter attached to seal’s back; Photo by B. Stewart).


      Preliminary processing (including preservation of samples for shipping) of biomedical
samples was accomplished within 2 to 5 hours of collection according to protocols established
by Aguirre et al. (1999), Aguirre (2000), and the 2000 Field Manual for Research on the
Hawaiian Monk Seal.2

        No dead, moribund or emaciated seals were observed during this field expedition. We
collected biomedical samples from all 30 seals fitted with satellite transmitters. Minor clinical
abnormalities were detected in five seals during physical exams. One seal (TD28, a 2-year old
juvenile male) was slightly dehydrated (< 5%), had bright yellow (normal odor) loose feces and
multiple punctate ulcerations of the rectal mucosa in a region approximately 0.5 – 1.0 cm
proximal to the anus. A female weaned pup (TM56) was slightly dehydrated (< 5%). An adult
female (T84F, non-cohort, > 16 y) had a small central opacity in the left cornea. Tapeworms
(sample collected) were visible at the anus and packed the rectum of a 7-year old adult female
(TJ70). A 7-year old adult male (TJ58) had a slight, bilateral, pinkish-brown nasal discharge
(nares otherwise normal, swabbed as per epidemiology protocol).

Tracking instrument deployment

       Once seals were sedated and samples collected, we glued a satellite linked data
recorder/transmitter (SLDR) to the dorsal pelage of each of 30 seals (10 weaned pups [5 females,
5 males]; 10 juveniles [5 males, 5 females]; 10 adults [5 males, 5 females]; Table 2) using a
quick setting epoxy.
       The SLDRS consisted of an ARGOS certified transmitter, for determination of
geographic location, and a microprocessor controlled event recorder to monitor use of vertical
marine habitats (diving behavior). The SLDRs deployed on weaned pups and some juveniles
were capable of about 20,000 transmissions (Table 2). Those deployed on the other juveniles
and on all adults had larger battery supplies and were capable of about 60,000 transmissions

(Table 2). Effective transmission power output was 250 W for all PTTs.

         Maximum depth of dive, duration of dive, and time at depth were summarized by 6-hour
periods and then transmitted as frequency histograms (Table 3). The depth of the deepest dive
made during each 24-hour period was recorded and transmitted separately. To conserve battery
power and extend tracking, we programmed the SLDRS to be active only during periods of the
day when good satellite coverage was expected (Appendix I). The SLDRs were also
programmed to shift from a transmission rate of around 1/40 s to around 1/90 s once a seal was
hauled out constantly for 6 to 10 minutes. Moreover, if the seal remained hauled out for about
70 minutes, transmissions ceased until it reentered the sea for more than 1.5 minutes. Whenever
at sea, transmissions were suppressed when the SLDR was below the sea surface owing to an
electrical conductivity circuit that closed whenever there was continuous saltwater contact
between two or three electrodes mounted on the surface of the SLDR.

       Locations were determined several times each day by the Argos earth-orbiting satellite
system and the Argos Data Collection and Location Service (DCLS), as described in detail
elsewhere (e.g., Fancy et al., 1988; Harris et al., 1990; Stewart et al., 1989; Stewart, 1997).


3. Results
Geographic dispersion of foraging monk seals

        We tracked seals for 7 to 351 days and geographic locations were determined for each
seal during 57 to 2861 of the satellite orbits (Tables 4 and 5). We filtered the locations to
eliminate un-reliable ones based on the distance and time between successive locations and
estimates of reasonable travel rates of monk seals (cf. Abernathy, 1999). We used the remaining
locations to define general patterns of dispersion of foraging seals by age and sex (Figs. 4 and 5)
and individually (Figs. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

       Virtually all seals ranged widely from Laysan Island to forage though there was
considerable variation among seals (Figs. 6 through 11). Twenty (67%) of all seals traveled to
and spent substantial time foraging at Maro Reef, including all male weaned pups and two of the
female pups (Fig. 1). Moreover, ten seals traveled as far as Raita Bank to forage, including three
pups (Table 6). Twelve seals also foraged around the Northampton Seamounts (Figs .6-11;
Table 6).
Diving patterns

       Daily maximum dive depths: All seals exceeded 40 meters3 during the tracking period
(Table 5) and most (80%) seals dove to 100 m or more. Indeed, dives of all adult females
exceeded 300 m (Table 5) and they were consistently the deepest divers (cf Figs. 12-16). Adult
females also were the most variable in daily dive depth maxima (Fig. 13).

    i.e., deeper than the currently defined Critcal Habitat for Hawaiian monk seals of 20 fathoms (36.6 m).
                                                5

         Dive depth frequency histograms: Over 12,000 depth histogram records were received
for all seals accounting for over one million maximum depths of dives (Table 7). Overall, most
dives were shallower than 40 m though there were clear secondary deeper modes at 60 to 80 m
(juveniles and weaned pups), 120 to 140 m (adult females and weaned pups) and 250 to 350 m
(adult females and juveniles) (Fig. 18). Adult males were consistently the shallowest divers
(Figs. 19, 20, 21; cf. also 22-27). Nonetheless, foraging depths of seals of similar age and sex
varied substantially (Figs. 22-27).

        Dive duration frequency histograms: Over 12,000 duration histograms were received for
all seals accounting for over one million measured dive durations (Table 7). Overall, most dives
lasted eight minutes or less and there were no substantial differences among adults, juveniles,
and weaned pups (Figs. 28-31), though durations of individuals of each group varied
substantially (Figs. 32-37).

        Time at depth: As a proxy for dive effort, the time-at-depth data suggest that individuals
allocated substantial amounts of time foraging at depth (Figs. 38-41), though individuals varied
considerably in those allocations (Figs. 42-46). Adult females, weaned pups, and juveniles all
spent substantially greater amounts of time foraging at greater depths than adult males (cf. Figs.
42-46).
