Catches of two carangid fishes (Perciformes), Caranx heberi (Bennett, 1830) (two specimens: 251.5-260.0 mm fork length) and Ulua mentalis (Cuvier, 1833) (nine specimens: 203.6-244.0 mm), off Kasasa on the East China Sea side of Kagoshima Prefecture, Kyushu, Japan, represent the northernmost records of these Indo-West Pacific species. Caranx heberi has not previously been recorded north of the equator in the western Pacific, and the northernmost record of U. mentalis has been Taiwan. The Kagoshima specimens are described in detail and their biogeographic implications are discussed.
