Abstract

The first data on features of the biology of the sea anemone Charisea saxicola, which is widespread in the Northwest Pacific, were obtained. That species, inhabiting the littoral of Shikotan Isl. (the Minor Kurile Ridge), belongs by its trophological attributes to nonselective deposit feeders. Animals swallow soil together with the organisms in it, not separating mineral particles from organic ones. Populations of Ch. saxicola are presented by individuals of mail and female sex, however the females prevailed in number. Hermaphrodites and evidence of sex change were not revealed in that species. Females were in the postspawning condition in all settlements. Spermatogenic cells of the new generation at two stages of development were recorded in males.
