Management strategies for cephalopod fisheries present similar challenges to those encountered in fisheries for finfish. Peculiarities of cephalopod life cycles and the fact that cephalopod fisheries can benefit from management experiences gained in other fisheries may help to preclude mistakes and management failures. During a three-day workshop, features of cephalopod biology, recommended areas of research and key conclusions for management were identified and points of differences between…

Environmental effects on cephalopod population dynamics: implications for management of fisheries.
Cephalopod growth: historical context and future directions
The history and challenges in studying octopus growth are reviewed, and the need to develop and expand novel techniques for ageingOctopus growth is highlighted, and there is considerable scope for further research on statolith ageing techniques.
Changes in inferred spawning areas of Todarodes pacificus (Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae) due to changing environmental conditions
A possible scenario for the recent stock increase based on changing environmental conditions is proposed, based on trends in annual variations in stock and in larval abundances.
Eggs-per-recruit model for management of the California market squid (Loligo opalescens) fishery
A per-recruit model for the management of the California market squid fishery is developed and it is found that increasing the rate of natural mortality decreased spawned eggs-per-Recruit while increasing proportional egg escapement and other parameters, such as the maturation rate and gear vulnerability of immature females, affected the reference points.
Accounting for the effect of temperature on squid growth in nature: from hypothesis to practice
Acute and chronic ocean-scale seawater-temperature change events will compel us to look to squids as ‘bioindicators’ of environmental condition and to statoliths as the ‘archives' of this information.

Changes in assessment methodology: Assessment of squids is challenging due to a lack of reliable data and their unusual life history. In this document we suggest several alternatives for calculating
Growth of Cephalopods: Conceptual Model
Following the life cycle approach and physiological analysis of cephalopod growth, it is proposed that this growth be described by three linear equations: the first representing slower paralarval
Analysis of the morphological variation of Doryteuthis sanpaulensis (Cephalopoda: Loliginidae) in Argentinian and Brazilian coastal waters using geometric morphometrics techniques
The results suggest that the morphotypes of Doryteuthis sanpaulensis are adaptations to oceanographic regimens, and show a large overlap between the categories based on sex and maturity stage.
Long-term changes in zooplankton and its relationship with squid, Todarodes pacificus, catch in Japan/East Sea
Long-term change in zooplankton biomass and composition of major zooplankton assemblages was studied with a focus on climate change and squid catch in the Japan/East Sea. This study deals with data


Can understanding squid life-history strategies and recruitment improve management?
It is suggested that the roles of space and time are reversed in the two groups of ommastrephids, suggesting that management strategies also should differ.
Cephalopod life cycles: patterns and exceptions
A holistic approach to ecological research and resource management of cephalopods and the use of basic life-cycle parameters in management application is emphasized, and comparisons are drawn with the management of teleost stocks.
The influence of the environment on chokka squid Loligo vulgaris reynaudii spawning aggregations: steps towards a quantified model
A conceptual model which describes the biological components and dynamics of chokka squid spawning aggregations showed that an upwelling event was coincident with the formation of a spawning aggregation, supporting the hypothesis that changes in temperature trigger spawning.
Why squid, though not fish, may be better understood by pretending they are
The key implication of the theory so articulated is that comparative approaches, such as used to infer or check the values of vital statistics in fish, should also work in squid, and current, very low estimates of longevity in large squid should be revised upwards.
