I'm the same. Squid no probs for bait or plate. Cuttlefish I just can't kill, they are amazing critters.

I'm the same, couldn't bring myself to kill them. Diving with giant cuttlefish and watching their behaviour is hard to beat, especially when they interact with us.

Ive had my daughter filming them from one side as I photographed the opposite side, both of us were getting different display patterns and colours.

Octopus are pretty smart too. Not to mention pigs, sheep, goats. I don't reckon being dumb or ugly means you deserve to be eaten though. Getting caught and being delicious are the only criteria that matter!

No dramas here Omally - just sharing my philosophy of carnivore ethics - i.e. that being intelligent or beautiful shouldn't spare you from being eaten!

The thing with cuttlefish is that as soon as females finish laying eggs, they die and float to the surface.   Keep an eye out for them around Spring. They still make great bait when found dead.
