The present report brings together a number of separate contributions dealing with the biology, assessment and management of cephalopod resources. These illustrate individually, and as a whole, that although the cephalopods share a common environment with the dominant marine fish species, they have often adopted quite different life history strategies. These, if anything, make for a greater resistance to industrial fishing pressure than is the case for many finfish species. Several of these special features of the life history should ideally be taken into account in scientific management of both cephalopods and those fish stocks which often occur with them in the commercial catch.
