Local fishers typically worked in 2-3 person crews from 6-8 m skiffs powered with 40 horsepower outboard motors and used bottom-set gillnets to target primarily Pacific green spiny lobster (Panulirus gracilis), which have high commercial value on local markets, but also retained incidentally captured species (families Carangidae, Haemulidae, Kyphosidae, Portunidae, Scombridae, and Serranidae) of lesser commercial value for sale or subsistence.

In general, the number of taxa at the family level did not increase, with the exception of a single Kyphosidae (sea chub) specimen (raising the total number from 19 to 20).
Targeted species were classified into five groups according to Bellwood (1988): reef-associated species (Carangidae and Sphyraenidae), reef planktivores (Acanthuridae, Caesionidae, and Pomacentridae), reef species (mainly Lutjanidae, Lethrinidae, Scaridae, Serranidae, Kyphosidae, and octopus), open water species (Belonidae, Elopidae, and Scombridae), and off-reef species (Lutjanidae).
