    don't the NRCC and various others (Cuttlegirl, Thales, and Paradox, for example!) do this all the time? Not on a "farming for food" scale, obviously, though. Of course, if they've published extensive studies, it would be interesting to see if they've observed, or ideally solved, the phenomenon that was mentioned that tank-laid eggs (or was it 2nd generation tank-laid eggs?) are less likely to be healthy than wild collected ones...

    Monty,
    There is a bit of a difference in SIZE of the cuttles raised here by our members and the ones discussed in the article. Those can get almost as large as a person if the photos are accurate.
