Cephalopod Culture edited by José Iglesias, Lidia Fuentes & Roger Villanueva.


April 2014, 2014. 26cm. Pp.xiii, 494. 140 photos & figures (40 in colour). Hardbound.


'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).


‘Cephalopod Culture’ also looks to the future. Recent breakthroughs, such as the successful rearing of large octopus hatchlings on a wholly artificial diet of squid paste, are highlighted, as are areas requiring further research; for example, there is a need to understand better the nutritional requirements of planktonic hatchlings so that appropriately enriched zooplankton can be raised as prey items. This makes this book not only an ideal introduction to cephalopod culture, but also a valuable resource for those already involved in this topic.
