Japanese researchers said Thursday they have located an area where “ma-anago” (real Japanese conger) lay their eggs, retrieving young fish 380 km south of Okinotorishima Island in the Pacific Ocean.

The egg-laying site should be along a ridge at the bottom of the ocean about 100 km south of where the fish were found, based on the direction of the currents, according to the joint team of researchers from the Fisheries Research Agency in Yokohama, the University of Tokyo and Kyushu University.
