Among the Japanese marketable cuttlefishes the species of the most economic importance is “ommastrephes sloani pacificus” Steenstrup, which is popularly known as “Surume-ika” or “Nibanzurume.” Rather suddenly there occurred a marked decrease of the catch, as it took place in certain provinces some years ago. The condition is often repeated, so that villages which have been living upon this fishing industry suffer serious loss. The people of these localities are anxious to learn what causes this decrease, hence investigation is urgent. This condition caused the author to undertake the present investigation at the request of one of the provinces which has suffered for 12 years. Maps, illustrations, charts and tables.
