Regional and interannual variations in spawning activity of Pacific saury Cololabis saira during the northward migration in spring were investigated for 1995–1997 in the north-western Pacific. Only females with a large body size (≥270–290 mm knob length) appeared to spawn. Almost all females in this cohort were actively spawning in a region of sea surface temperature (TSS) >18° C, the proportion of active spawners appeared positively related to TSS in a region of 13° C < TSS≤ 18° C, and no females were spawning in the region of TSS≤13° C. Although this relationship between spawning activity and TSS was common in all years, the distribution of females in the large-size cohort among the regions varied interannually. Consequently, the proportion of active spawners among adult females showed considerable interannual variations.
