Abstract : The paper discusses the results of data based on faunal and floral samples obtained from the littoral and the upper edge of continental coast of the Sea of Japan, namely between the gulfs z. Pos'yeta and z. De Kastri. The samples were obtained by the Far Eastern Coastal Expedition of the Institute of Oceanology in 1948. The close association of faunal composition, distribution and quantity with the plant world is analysed in detail. In addition, the effect of ground, coastal contours, exposure to waves, and influx of fluvial water are pointed out, comparing various coastal sectors and their flora and fauna.
