As part of the Navys Environmental Protection Program, a detailed biological survey of Pearl Harbor was conducted by the Naval Undersea Center. At the time the survey commenced fall 1971, little was known about the living marine resources of that harbor. During the next year and a half, an inventory of marine forms was produced which included a checklist of 393 positively identified species together with maps of the distribution of potential bio- indicator species within the harbor. The effort brought biological knowledge of Pearl Harbor to a par with that of Kaneohe Bay which has been studied by the University of Hawaii for many years. In addition to the basic field work, an efficient analytical procedure was developed for the processing, interpretation and display of the large amounts of data, both biological and physicochemical, obtained on environmental surveys.
