Abstract
The sptial and bathymetric distribution, size, weight composition, age, fecundity, and diet composition of the rare, little-studied gloved snailfish Palmoliparis beckeri Balushkin, 1996 (Liparidae) are considered, based on data obtained during expeditions between 1995 and 2001 in the Pacific, off the northern Kuril Islands, Russia.
