The offspring of Sepia esculenta are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Sepia esculenta, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Sepia esculenta, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Sepia is a genus of cuttlefish in the family Sepiidae encompassing some of the best known and most common species. The cuttlebone is relatively ellipsoid in shape. The name of the genus is the Latinized form of the Ancient Greek σηπία, sēpía, cuttlefish.
This species is demersal and inhabits sandy substrates (Reid et al. 2005). It feeds on crustaceans and small fish.
