Purchasing cuttlefish for research (UK)


Larval Mass
I'm a researcher at Swansea University - a Masters student has approached me who is interested in doing some behavioural work with cuttlefish. We've got excellent water quality and some in-house experience of raising Sepia officinalis. Does anyone know of a source for cuttle eggs or juveniles within the UK? I'm just sounding it out at the moment to see if it is worth putting a small grant in to buy some animals. I'd love to do it, if we can. Previously, I've obtained eggs from lobster pots but that won't be an option this time because of the timing of the Masters project. Any advice gratefully received.
