First data on ovary maturation and fecundity in the squid family Histioteuthidae
Vladimir Laptikhovsky

The potential fecundity of histioteuthid squid ranges from 3,000 to 275,000 oocytes. During maturation a significant oocyte resorption occurs in many species; therefore only advanced maturing females can be taken into account for fecundity estimation.
