Cuttlefish (family Sepiidae) belong to a specialised group of molluscs, known as cephalopods, which also includes octopus and squid. A wide range of cuttlefish products are found; their ink (sepia) is also prized as a colouring agent in cooking, textiles and paint.

Cuttlefish is typically caught at Hastings between March and June.
