The '''Sakhalin taimen''', also called the '''Sea-run tamen''', '''Stringfish''', '''Japanese huchen''', or '''Ito''', is one of largest, most ancient salmon species and primarily inhabits the lower to middle reaches of lakes and rivers in the Northwest Pacific: Sakhalin Island (Russia), the Island of Hokkaidō (Japan) and parts of the far eastern Russian Mainland. Fishes over 30 cm long are almost exclusively piscivores, while the young feed mostly on aquatic insects. World research concluded that this species of fish is, surprisingly, able to change its own sex for mating. Females typically lay between 2,000-10,000 eggs in the spring on the sandy or gravelly river bottom.

In 2006, the IUCN listed ''Hucho perryi'' as critically endangered based on the assessment completed by the Salmonid Specialist Group (SSG). This designation represents the highest potential risk of global extinction to the species. The assessment revealed that the range-wide population has dropped in size to less than 5% of historic levels.
