Five cuttlebones from three non-Mediterranean cuttlefishes, namely Sepia pharaonis, Sepia bertheloti, and Sepia recurvirostra, were found stranded ashore along the coast of Bari (Italy), southwestern Adriatic Sea. These cuttlebone findings cannot be considered evidence of exotic cuttlefish occurrence in the Adriatic Sea. Such Sepia shells most probably are the waste of imported frozen seafood dressing operations on the shore.
