Abstract Recent studies have shown that coastal and shelf cephalopod populations have increased globally over the last six decades. Although cephalopod landings are dominated by the squid fishery, which represents nearly 80% of the worldwide cephalopod catches, octopuses and cuttlefishes represent ∼10% each. Total reported global production of octopuses over the past three decades indicates a relatively steady increase in catch, almost doubling from 179,042 t in 1980 to 355,239 t in 2014… Expand
Observations on some morphometric characters of the webfoot octopus, Amphioctopus membranaceus (Quoy and Gaimard, 1832) from the Suez Gulf, Red Sea, Egypt
The fisheries resources in the Suez Gulf are depicted and the ecosystem has largely changed; switching from large-size and high value demersal fisheries dominated ecosystem to an ecosystem dominated by small- size and low value pelagic fisheries (GAFRD, 2018). Expand
Supporting the sustainable development of Australia’s octopus industry: First assessment of an artisanal fishery
Abstract Octopus fisheries are expanding worldwide to meet demand and fill market gaps left by overexploited species, a trend that is increasingly apparent in Australia. However, a lack of biologicalExpand
A review of cephalopods (Phylum: Mollusca) of the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (Central-East Atlantic, African coast)
Abstract An extensive review of cephalopod fauna in the Central and North Atlantic coast of Africa was performed based on material collected during 10 research cruises in these waters. In the CanaryExpand
A review of recent studies on the life history and ecology of European cephalopods with emphasis on species with the greatest commercial fishery and culture potential
Abstract With the depletion of many commercial fish stocks and an increasing demand for marine protein for human consumption, cephalopods have become more important as a fishery resource. In EUExpand
Incorporating evolutionary based tools in cephalopod fisheries management
It is proposed that the common octopus Octopus vulgaris would be a suitable model species to test the power of evolutionary tools to inform fishery scientists and managers on biological questions relevant for their sustainable exploitation. Expand
Fisheries for common octopus in Europe: socioeconomic importance and management
Abstract The European Union (EU) is one of the most important markets for cephalopods in the world. Currently, small-scale fisheries targeting the common octopus in the EU are of considerable socialExpand
Potential biomass and distribution of octopus in the eastern part of the Campeche Bank (Yucatán, Mexico)
The octopus fishery on the Campeche Bank (Yucatan, Mexico) is considered the third largest in the world. In Yucatan, two fleets target this resource: an artisanal fleet and a semi-industrial fleet.Expand
The den ecology and the effects of fishing pressure on the distribution of Octopus cyanea (Octopodidae: Mollusca) in Rodrigues lagoon, Rodrigues, Mauritius
ABSTRACT Octopus cyanea is a species of particular economic importance for coastal regions in the tropical Indo-Pacific, including the Mauritian island of Rodrigues. At present, little is known aboutExpand
Horizontal and vertical distribution of cephalopod paralarvae in the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System
Abstract Horizontal and vertical distribution of cephalopod paralarvae (PL) from the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS) in the Western Caribbean was studied during two oceanographic cruises inExpand
First detection of an ocellate octopus in the Revillagigedos ecoregion, a biodiversity hotspot located in the Tropical East Pacific Province
This study is the first to report a clade represented by ocellate and non-ocellate species, in addition, the identity of cephalopods in the Revillagigedos was determined with analytical support and it was found that the evolutionary relationships among octopuses are not determined by the presence of ocelli.

Overview of cephalopod fisheries in Chilean waters
This paper describes the history of cephalopod fisheries in Chile over the past 40 years. Continuous monitoring of three species was undertaken between 1978 and 1999: Loligo gahi, Dosidicus gigas andExpand
World Squid Fisheries
The present overview describes all substantial squid fisheries around the globe, with special attention paid to interactions between squid fisheries and marine ecosystems including the effects of fishing gear, the role of squid in ecosystem change induced by overfishing on groundfish, and ecosystem-based fishery management.

Cephalopods of Australia and Sub-Antarctic Territories
Australian waters contain the highest diversity of cephalopods (squid, cuttlefish and octopus) found anywhere in the world. They are highly significant ecologically, both as top-level predators andExpand
The traditional small-scale octopus trap fishery off the Galician coast (Northeastern Atlantic): Historical notes and current fishery dynamics
Abstract Common octopus is a worldwide important cephalopod resource fished by both industrial and small-scale fleets which has gained market value in recent decades. In Galicia (NW IberianExpand
Review of cephalopod fishery production and long term changes in fish communities in the Gulf of Thailand
The abundance of fishery resources in the coastal waters has declined substantially based on evidence from relative indices of abundance (CPUEs) and biomass and changes have been in size and species composition of the catch with an increased amount of low-value species and juveniles of high- value species caught.

Guide to squid, cuttlefish and octopuses of Australasia
While the book focuses on spcies found in relatively shallow coastal waters (typically less than 100 metres), a few of the more bizarre deep-water species are included and a comprehensive section illustrating cuttlebones should enable users to identify most of the species found in comparatively shallow water.

Stock assessment methods used for cephalopod fisheries
Abstract Cephalopods are of increasing importance as a fishery resource and many species are taken in directed and bycatch fisheries around the world. Owing to the short life-cycles and variableExpand
Cephalopods of Pacific Latin America
Abstract Cephalopod fisheries have experienced outstanding growth in Latin America during the last quarter century, increasing from 0.5% to 7% of total Latin American landings since 1990. Its watersExpand
Global proliferation of cephalopods
This study presents the first evidence that cephalopod populations have increased globally, indicating that these ecologically and commercially important invertebrates may have benefited from a changing ocean environment. Expand
