ABSTRACT: Study of sea anemones from south-east Kamchatka based on collections of KF TIG, our own collections and long term studies of living specimens in their natural environment significantly increased and corrected a list of Actiniaria species of this region. The paper provides full list of species occurring from intertidal zone to 35 m depth, descriptions and new data on biology and distribution of these species. There are no exclusively intertidal species and all 13 recorded species occur in subtidal, five of which may be present in intertidal zone. Most species are widely distributed in North Pacific; five species are distributed also in arctic seas.
