A major portion of the cephalopod catch in India is used as food in the coastal areas and a small portion as bait in the longline fishing. Other uses such as poultry feed, manure, abrasives etc. are also indicated. About one-third of the catch is exported as frozen cuttlefish, frozen cuttlefish fillets, frozen squids and cuttlebone. The trends in the export of cephalopod products in recent years are indicated.
