    Does anyone know of a source for cuttlefish eggs in Australia? Need them for research...ideally a tropical species such as Sepia latimanus so that it will be relevant to the work we do in our lab.
    Any help is appreciated!!

    No, I don't want to import them, I want a supplier within Australia
