Baseline capture and mark-and-release studies of Nautilus pompilius conducted at Osprey Reef, Coral Sea, Australia reveal that this unexploited population is stable from a catch per unit effort (CPUE) basis over 12 years. In contrast, data from a detailed interview questionnaire of N. pompilius fishers and traders in Palawan, Philippines highlight a fishery that is unsustainable. The results from the Philippines show up to 80% declines in reported CPUE from 1980 to the present, fewer than three… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Demographic disequilibrium in living nautiloids (Nautilus and Allonautilus): Canary in the coal mines?
TLDR
Data show that patterns of trap yields and demographic differences between fished and unfished populations in relative age class and sex ratios can indicate disequilibria wrought by fisheries pressure that can render local populations inviable.
Nautilus pompilius Life History and Demographics at the Osprey Reef Seamount, Coral Sea, Australia
TLDR
The results provide strong evidence of a K-selected life history for Nautilus from a detailed study of a ‘closed’ wild population and provides mechanisms to extrapolate these findings to other extant nautiloid populations throughout the Indo-Pacific.
Nautilus at Risk – Estimating Population Size and Demography of Nautilus pompilius
TLDR
These results provide the first Nautilid population and density estimates which are essential elements for long-term management of populations via sustainable catch models and provide confidence for their more widespread use to assess efficiently the size and density of exploited and unexploited Nautilus populations worldwide.
The genetic structure of Nautilus pompilius populations surrounding Australia and the Philippines
TLDR
The lack of connectivity among populations suggests that immigrants from west Australia would not facilitate natural recolonization if Philippine populations were fished to extinction, and microsatellite markers help to rectify the paucity of information on the species' biology currently inhibiting their conservation classification.
Comment on the proposed designation of a neotype for Nautilus pompilius Linnaeus, 1758
TLDR
A neotype designation is urgently needed for the IUCN red list assessments for this endangered species, which are very difficult in the absence of an identifiable type specimen with known provenance, as well as for trade regulations for this species by CITES.
Descriptions of Nautilus pompilius Linnaeus, 1758 from the Type Area, Ambon, Molucca Islands, and from Sumbawa - Lombok Islands, Indonesia
TLDR
Live-caught animals from 150–400 m depth off Ambon provide the first morphologic and genetic details on Nautilus pompilius from the type region, including a recently proposed neotype for the type species.
Foraging and scavenging in nautilus (Nautilus sp.) L. (Cl. Cephalopoda)
ABSTRACT Species of extant nautiluses (in Nautilus and Allonautilus) have been anecdotally described as opportunistic scavengers. Here, we examine foraging and scavenging behaviors of Nautilus in
Comparative Population Assessments of Nautilus sp. in the Philippines, Australia, Fiji, and American Samoa Using Baited Remote Underwater Video Systems

Correction: Comparative Population Assessments of Nautilus sp. in the Philippines, Australia, Fiji, and American Samoa Using Baited Remote Underwater Video Systems
The extant species of Nautilus and Allonautilus (Cephalopoda) inhabit fore-reef slope environments across a large geographic area of the tropical western Pacific and eastern Indian Oceans. While many
Assessing the impact of international trade on chambered nautilus
TLDR
Shells of chambered nautilus are well-known collectibles, traded across the globe from their Indo-Pacific origins, and biological and status information as well as trade, fishery, and industry data are insufficient to fully assess the impact of trade on these taxa.

Genetic diversity of isolated populations of Nautilus pompilius (Mollusca, Cephalopoda) in the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea
TLDR
The differentiation of the Nautilus populations from the Northern section of the Great Barrier Reef and those from the Coral Sea were supported by two distinctly different methodologies and the significance of this separation and the potential evolutionary divergence of these two population groups is discussed.
Natural rates of growth and longevity of Nautilus belauensis
TLDR
Capture-mark-recapture of Nautilus belauensis in Palau shows that this species is shown to live for at least 4 yr beyond maturity, and captured animals' life span may exceed 20 yr.
Nautilus growth and longevity: evidence from marked and recaptured animals.
TLDR
Study of Nautilus belauensis i its natural habitat in Palau, West Caroline Islands, shows that growth is slow and decreases as maturity is approached and that individuals may live at least 4 years beyond maturity.
Allonautilus; a new genus of living nautiloid cephalopod and its bearing on phylogeny of the Nautilida
TLDR
It is surmised that Allonautilus is a descendent of Nautilus, that the latter is paraphyletic, and first evolved in the Mesozoic, rather than in the late Cenozoics, as has been previously suggested.
Genetic Variation in the Cephalopod Nautilus belauensis
TLDR
The moderate levels of genetic variability discovered are discussed in light of the traditional status of Nautilus as a bradytelic living fossil.
Growth rate and habitat of Nautilus pompilius inferred from radioactive and stable isotope studies
TLDR
The growth rate of Nautilus pompilius in its natural environment has been determined from radioactive disequilibrium between 210 Pb and its granddaughter 210 Po in septa of two juvenile specimens to suggest that the timing of septal deposition probably is dependent on the rate of shell and tissue growth coupled with buoyancy requirements and is not a unique period for all Nauts.
A biphasic memory curve in the chambered nautilus, Nautilus pompilius L. (Cephalopoda: Nautiloidea)
TLDR
Using a Pavlovian conditioning paradigm, it is demonstrated that chambered nautilus exhibits temporally separated short- and long-term memory stores, producing a characteristic biphasic memory curve similar to that of cuttlefishes.
Factors influencing the sustainability of customary dugong hunting by a remote indigenous community
The sustainability of indigenous customary hunting and fishing in remote areas can be influenced by human factors operating at global as well as regional and local scales because of the hybrid nature
A Global Review of Incentive Payments for Sea Turtle Conservation
TLDR
This paper describes sea turtle incentive payment initiatives taking place around the world, most of which are found in projects focusing on nesting beach protection, and finds that many of these initiatives have achieved substantial results for a very low annual cost.
Y-maze experiments on the chemotactic behaviour of the tetrabranchiate cephalopod Nautilus pompilius (Mollusca)
TLDR
Behavioural studies provide evidence that sexually mature male N. pompilius are attracted to females by excretions of the rectum, and homogenates from males and/or females had no influence on the behaviour of immature animals of both sexes.
