Strongylocentrotus intermedius is adapted to cold waters. As with other strongylocentrotids, it feeds mainly on kelp. Populations in the eastern Pacific Ocean and Sea of Okhotsk differ from those in the Sea of Japan. Current recruitment is high in the Sea of Okhotsk and is poor in the Sea of Japan and Pacific Ocean. Ecological and genetic studies should be done to investigate the differences between these populations for their conservation, sustainable fishery production, and aquaculture.
