A dense community of benthic animals was discovered by the Japanese ROV 'Kaiko' in the hadal zone near the bottom of the Japan Trench, 7326 m deep. The community was dominated by a new species of…
Scyphomedusa Aurelia limbata (Brandt, 1838) found in deep waters off Kushiro, Hokkaido, Northern Japan.(Behavior Biology and Ecology)(Proceeding of the Seventy-Third Annual Meeting of the Zoological…
The scyphomedusa Aurelia limbata is known as an epipelagic species distributed along the Pacific coastal areas of Japan from the Tohoku region to Hokkaido, the Okhotsk Sea, the Bering Sea, and the northern part of the Japan Sea and the life cycle has been reported to be the same as that of Au relia aurita.
Life history of Gonatus onyx (Cephalopoda: Teuthoidea): ontogenetic changes in habitat, behavior and physiology
Behavior and physiological changes with ontogeny of G. onyx are believed to result from reduced visual predator/prey interactions in the light-limited deep sea.

The behaviour of Loligo opalescens as observed by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) was analysed. Thirty-nine behavioural components were identified and classed into four categories: chromatic,…
Methodology for creating an observational database of midwater fauna using submersibles: Results from Sagami Bay, Japan
Light Production by the Arm Tips of the Deep-Sea Cephalopod Vampyroteuthis infernalis
Observations on the structure and operation of the arm-tip light organs, the character of the luminous cloud, and how the light they produce is incorporated into behavioral patterns are presented.
