Hi Hannah.

There's plenty of evidence of cuttlefish activity along Southsea beach at the moment with lots of their white bones washed up on the shoreline. also saw a couple of fully formed dead ones floating in the sea on Tuesday.

Thanks everyone for there help, i really do apprciate it! Im trying to do some tracking of cuttlefish movements, where they are and whether they are spawning etc. They are known to move to shallower waters in the channel in warmer weather and am wondering if they are doing this earlier in the year- which might in turn affect when they are available for fishing etc etc. the eggs are like little oval black bubbles about the size of a 1p or a bit bigger and old dried up ones are often seen on beaches :) .
