Due to the cessation of hostilities on August 15, 1945, the Pargo had only eight days of offensive patrol in the Sea of Japan. During these eight days, the Pargo reported contact with four small escorted convoys, three of which were attacked. She also reported contact with seven sea trucks, one of which was attacked. The Pargo departed the Sea of Japan via the Tsushima Strait on September 3, 1945.
