  • Provides details on methods used in the different stages of cephalopod culture: obtaining and maintaining brood stock, the spawning process, larval rearing and on growing
  • Includes recent breakthroughs (i.e. successful rearing of large octopus hatchlings on a wholly artificial diet of squid paste)
  • Emphasis on the additional economic benefits of cephalopod culture (such as restocking)
  • Contains a wealth of information on cephalopod constraints and bottlenecks in the culturing process

Cephalopod Culture is the first compilation of research on the culture of cephalopods. It describes experiences of culturing different groups of cephalopods: nautiluses, sepioids (Sepia officinalis, Sepia pharaonis, Sepiella inermis, Sepiella japonica Euprymna hyllebergi, Euprymna tasmanica), squids (Loligo vulgaris, Doryteuthis opalescens, Sepioteuthis lessoniana) and octopods (Amphioctopus aegina, Enteroctopus megalocyathus, Octopus maya, Octopus mimus, Octopus minor, Octopus vulgaris, Robsonella fontaniana). It also includes the main conclusions which have been drawn from the research and the future challenges in this field. This makes this book not only an ideal introduction to cephalopod culture, but also a valuable resource for those already involved in this topic.
