Living in the vicinity of Hokkaido and off the coast of the Sea of Japan. It has a straight back, the abdomen protrudes, and large pectoral fins. It to have upturned eyes and socket, there are spines at the gill lids. Since there
are no scales, it is easy to cook. Adult male fish jump out a generative organ when pushed over the anus. Dive into the sand at a water depth of 100 to 400 meters during the daytime and wait for the krill to pass through and prey. In November-January,
they migrated to the coastal surf zone and spawned ball-shaped eggs (buriko) on brown algae of the order Fucales. Be aware that in Akita and Aomori Prefectures, picking up and bringing back the buriko-eggs launched after the sea rages will arrest them.
Briko hatches normally when returned to the sea. Tasty.
There are many kinds of fish living in the ocean. We can identify the species by the slight differences in patterns. It is relatively easy to identify the species of adult fish, but it is difficult to identify the species
of juvenile fish. I would like to contribute to SDG 14 (LIFE BELOW WATER) by letting as many people as possible know how interesting and important marine biodiversity is.
The United Nations has designated the decade starting in 2021 as the "Decade of Ocean Science," with the aim of contributing to SDGs. Ocean science, as defined by the UN, includes the field of fisheries.
