The features of horizontal and vertical distribution of the species in the sublittoral zone were described. The most productive of the study region, was the area of the Lesser Kuril Ridge south of Shiko- tan, with the kelp stock of 900.8 thousand tons, and the least productive – area of Shikotan Island with the kelp stock of 42.7 thousand tons.
