About Us

The NRCC has a 30 year history of providing the biomedical research community with squid, cuttlefish and other cephalopods for research. It is the only facility to date that has been able to culture squids from egg to adulthood for multiple generations. We provide known-age squid, cuttlefishes and octopuses as well as cells, tissues and organ systems to researchers without the trauma of mass harvesting, thus providing excellent research animals while preserving the natural populations of cephalopods in the oceans.
