This Topic Page is a guide to Squid, Octopus and Cuttlefish.

Cephalopods are an ancient class of molluscs characterised by the way they swim- usinga form of jet propulsion which squirts water out of their bodies- and by a ring of tentacles around their mouths. Some of the earliest cephalopods were ammonites, now familiarly found as fossils. All cephalopods are carnivorous and most produce ink. Three species of cephalopod are widely harvested and eaten in Europe: Squid, Cuttlefish and Octopus.
