Information on the distribution of Cephalopod fauna was collected through 45 deep-trawl surveys carried out on the commercial trawl fishery waters (between 20 and 200 m) between March 2004 and May 2005. During the study, a total of 1101 individuals belonging to eight species; two cuttlefishes, two squids and four octopods, were recorded. Mean value of dorsal mantle lengths and body weights of the captured species were; 10.74 ± 0.10 cm and 126.42 ±3.24 g for Sepia officinalis, 4.2 cm and 4.68 g for Sepia elegans, 15.3±0.42 cm and 87.68 ±6.35 g for Loligo vulgaris, 10.93 ±0.28 cm and 48.17 ±4.52 g for Illex coindetii, 8.08 ±0.13 cm and 99.17 ±4.01 g for Eledone moschata, 13.5 cm and 281.46 g for Eledone cirrhosa, 10.25±0.45 cm and 370.33 ±53.89 g for Octopus vulgaris, 12.71±0.64 cm and 405.59 ±51.69 g for Octopus macropus. In addition the present study also provides information on dorsal mantle length – body weight relationship and biology of the species found in this particular area.
