On the Habitat of Nautilus pompilius in Tañon Strait (Philippines) and the Fiji Islands
Since 1981, we have been engaged in field studies of the habitat of Nautilus pompilius in the Philippines (1981 and 1982) and in the Fiji Islands (1982 and 1983) (Hayasaka et al., 1982; Hayasaka, 1983, 1985). The main purpose of these studies was to obtain basic data on the habitat of N. pompilius in the Philippines and in Fiji, which are at opposite ends of the vast distribution range this species. Although the overall project is still in progress, the results of study to date are summarized in this chapter.
