Ecological Note:
Concern has been expressed over suspected dwindling numbers of Nautilus.

As the cephalopods generally live at depths of between 100m and 500m it is difficult for scientists to absolutely quantify numbers in the wild. However, anecdotal evidence form fishermen and comparison of number counts and size of specimens from fished areas and protected marine environments suggest that in some localities of the world overfishing is becoming a problem.

Whilst the lifecycle of Nautilus is not fully understood, it is known that the creature can take up to ten years to reach sexual maturity and even then the species does not produce a free swimming larval stage, making it difficult for it to re-colonise areas should numbers become depleted.

Marine Arts will continue to monitor the situation, and at all times work within agreed International Conventions and the Law of exporting countries.
