I don't think the cuttlebones were thought to be signs of death from the storm, just signs that there is a breeding ground with a good population (that was feared dwindling) so I took the report to be nothing but positive.

Hmm, maybe - sounded like an unusual mass-death event to me (not necessarily from the storm)...? *shrug* But yes, a positive sign that they're out there (...or at least they were... not enough info I'm afraid)

I do wish they would post something about the octopuses in Portugal though. So far I can only find references to the initial die-off
