The largest of Japan's salmonids featured by the new Aquatales resin line, this is the Kaiyodo Aquatales Polyresin Aquatic animal figure collection Series 2 No. 006 Japanese Huchen, Ito, or Sakhalin Taimen, Parahucho (or Hucho) perryi (Brevoort, 1856). The figure has a total length of 107 mm, so the scale is between approx. 1:5 and 1:18. One of the largest salmonids in the world, the Ito can grow to 2 m total length (TL, i.e. including caudal fin). Today, the geographical range of the species is restricted to Sakhalin Island, a small part of Khabarovsk Krai, and the Kuril Islands (Russia), as well as Hokkaidō (Japan), while it is already extinct on Japan's main island Honshū. Overfishing (as bycatch but also poaching) as well as habitat loss has lead to a dramatic decline of the population and IUCN classifies the species as "Critically Endangered".
