Abstract

The spatial distribution of epifauna in the Far Eastern Marine Reserve was examined using a remotely operated vehicle. The abundance and distribution patterns of the sea stars Patiria pectinifera, Distolasterias nipon, and Asterias amurensis, as well as those of brittle stars, the black sea cucumber Cucumaria japonica, the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus intermedius, the ascidian Halocynthia aurantium, hermit crabs, and the Japanese scallop Mizuhopecten yessoensis were determined in the South Section of the Reserve. The average biomass of five dominant epifaunal species ranged from 51.0 to 87.4% of the average biomass of the softbottom communities.
