National Park of American Samoa Fish

Because the national park contains extensive marine environments from the shorelines of four separate islands out to ocean depths beyond the outer reefs we assume that the majority of the 991 fish species representing 113 families are found in or near the park This is about twice the number occurring in Hawaii, but half the number in the Indo-Pacific region. Dominant families are damselfish ( Pomacentridae ), surgeonfish ( Acanthuridae ), wrasse ( Labridae ) and parrotfish ( Scaridae ).
