In both cuttlefish (Sepioidea) and squids (Teuthoidea), the oocytes develop from the branching of the genital strand (inside ovary), which almost extends to the posterior end of the mantle from the posterior end of the stomach, within the viscero-pericardial coelom (Harman et al.
A second mechanism is interspecific defense, based on the use of aversive, distasteful chemicals, as shown for ink of Caribbean reef squid Sepioteuthis sepioidea against a predatory fish, the French grunt Haemulon flavolineaum (Wood et al., 2010).
In this study the fine ultrastructure of the tropical squid Sepiotheutis sepioidea (Blainville, 1823) (Cephalopoda: Loliginidae) was examined in both sexes at different sexual maturity stages, using Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) in order to compare secretory cell changes during the life cycle of this specie.
Alternatively, because two cuttlefish were present during trials with seabass compared to one with bluefish, the Dark eye ring display may have been used as a signal to conspecifics to alert them of danger as well as an antipredator display, as has been suggested for Sepioteuthis sepioidea by Moynihan and Rodaniche (1982).
