抄録: The distribution of aquatic animals is severely limited by water temperature. However, little is known about migration pattern, over-wintering and reproduction at the northern limits of their distribution. To investigate the sexual maturation of the Japanese pygmy squid (Idiosepius paradoxus) and its ability to survive during winter at the northern limits of its distribution, we conducted monthly collections at Usujiri in northern Japan and carried out low temperature tolerance experiments. Squids were collected only during four months in autumn and early winter. In autumn, all squids were large and sexually mature, and many egg masses were found on the surface of seagrass, whereas in early winter, only small immature squids were collected. A warm northward-flowing current reached near Usujiri in autumn. These results suggest that squids were transported by the current and some small squids were recruits that hatched at Usujiri. Field data and low temperature tolerance experiments showed that I. paradoxus can not survive in the low seawater temperature that occurs at Usujiri in winter. The migration pattern in I. paradoxus may differ from the major pattern where young fish are passively transported and never reproduce at the northern limits.
