Raising cuttlefish in captivity from fragile eggs to full-grown predators can present daunting challenges for an aquarium. In order to ensure they have cuttlefish to exhibit, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s staff takes extra measures to provide these complex cephalopods a helping hand. Using recycled soda bottles, modified cradles, and knowledge of each species’ husbandry, Aquarium staff have nurtured to adulthood 95 percent of the cuttlefish spawned.
