Abstract
    This is the third in the FAO series of worldwide annotated and illustrated catalogues of major groups of organisms that enter marine fisheries. The present volume includes 173 cephalopod species of actual or potential fishery interest, belonging to the Nautiloidea (nautiluses), Sepioidea (cuttlefishes), Teuthoidea (squids) and Octopoda (octopuses). It provides a comprehensive and illustrated key to al1 the 43 cephalopod families, with a glossary of technical terms and measurements. Within each family are given individual accounts of species, which include drawings, scientific and vernacular names, information on habitat, biology and fisheries, and a distribution map; for most families there is also a key to genera. The work is fully indexed and there is ample referente to pertinent literature.
