This is an abundant species in the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. How far it penetrates into the ocean is not known as most researchers have not separated it from the very closely related species, P. pacifica, which lives in the subarctic waters of the Pacific Ocean. There are references to its detection in the ocean in the coastal areas of northern Japan and the South Kuril Islands. [Bovallius, 1887]
