Resources

The CIAC website’s main purpose is to keep the cephalopod research community connected between meetings by providing a platform for current news and information.  The community also keeps in contact through the FASTMOLL email distribution list, to which you can subscribe here, and the CIAC Facebook page.

Many other external websites host excellent repositories of information about specific aspects of cephalopod biology. We recommend the following sources:
