Authors


Abstract

Squid are popular exhibit animals but have been bred comparatively rarely in aquariums. A method of displaying and rearing the Broad-mantle squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana has been developed at Miyajima Aquarium. The construction of the exhibition tank and the successful rearing to maturity of eggs collected from the wild are described.
