Abstract We collected Nyctiphanes simplex in Barkley Sound, Canada (48°54′N, 125°6′W) between May and September 1998. This was during the most intensive ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) event recorded and when southward current velocities were anomalously low. This is a range extension of about 330 km NNW of where N. simplex was collected previously by plankton sampling gear and about 65 km NNW of where it was found in fish stomachs. Animals ranged between 10 and 20 mm total length and were at various states of maturity. We present length-frequency and maturity stage distributions as well as length-mass relationships. Results from an ongoing herring diet monitoring programme showed that they did not feed on N. simplex.
