Abstract

Adults of pelagic cephalopods actively avoid sampling gem: Hence, collections of early life stages have gained a greater importance and have led to meaningful conclusions in various aspects of cephalopod fishery biology. Recent zooplankton/micronekton collections taken with state-of-the-art sampling gear in the North East Atlantic Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Southem Ocean have revealed important new information an early juvenile cephalopods. Some of the results reviewed in the present contribution demonstrate the suitability of such gears to study key aspects of early life biology of cephalopods such as fine- and meso-scale distribution and even morphological adaptations to the abundance of prey.
