Abstract : Some thermophilic species of the genera Engraulis, Cololabis and Calliongmus are found farther north than was assumed. Engraulis japonicus inhabits the southern Kurile area, Cololabis saira was found off the west coast of Sakhalin and in Zaliv Aniva, while the sea mouse (Callionymus sp.) was observed off the west coast of Sakhalin and off the southern Kurile Islands. The spawning time of these species varied from July to September, depending on the species and the geographical location. Redfishes spawn in August--September off the west coast of Sakhalin and in Zaliv Aniva, and in September in the southern Sakhalin and southern Kurile areas. The surface water temperatures at which the spawning and development occur varied from 9.9 to 21.0 deg., mainly from 11.9 to 16.4 deg. (Author)
