A series of dives was conducted during April/May 2002 in a variety of water masses over the Japan Trench using the remotely-operated vehicle ROV HyperDolphin. The scyphomedusan fauna was catalogued, resulting in the first records of Atolla vanhoeffeni and Atolla russelli from Japanese waters. A new genus and species referable to the family Paraphyllinidae was also recognized. The ulmarid scyphomedusa Poralia rufescens is by far the most common scyphomedusa in these waters. Its distribution was…

Comparative ROV surveys reveal jellyfish blooming in a deep-sea caldera: the first report of Earleria bruuni from the Pacific Ocean

Large numbers of the leptomedusa Earleria bruuni were observed inside a semi-closed deep-sea caldera during a comparative survey of the macrozooplankton fauna inside and outside the Kurose Hole,

Biodiversity of cnidarian and ctenophore forms in Toyama Bay, Japan Sea, was lower than that in Sagami Bay, north-western Pacific, according to all indices investigated and for accurate calculations of biodiversity indices incorporating evenness or equitability, the necessity for multiple submersible dives in a single area and survey period was noted.

Associations in the midwater zone: The penaeid shrimp funchalia sagamiensis fujino 1975 and pelagic tunicates (order: Pyrosomatida)

An association between the penaeid shrimp Funchalia sagamiensis FUJINO 1975 and pelagic tunicates of the Order Pyrosomatida was confirmed through in situ submersible and shipboard observations, and is "strong"; possibly obligate for the shrimp during this life‐history phase.
