Ever since cuttlefishes and squids entered the export market, priority for their fishing, especially for the former whose value had been leaping ahead in recent times, is next to that of prawns. The cuttlefish, Sepia pharaonis, and the squid, Loligo duvaticelli constitutes an important seasonal fishery in the southern part of the west coast of India (Trivandrum and Kanyakumari). A brief description of some of less-known indigenous varieties of gears like 'Vidukayiru' for cuttlefish, 'Nangoora choonda' for cuttlefish, 'Nangoora choonda' for squid and 'Disco nangoora choonda' for cuttlefish used in Cephalopore capture fishery are given in the article.
