SARDI records estimate approximately 110,000 Giant Cuttlefish aggregated to the Port Lowly area last year and these majestic creatures will migrate to these waters again from May to July, for the sole purpose of sex. It is the only place in the world where these amazing (Sepia Apama) gather it such large numbers. You will see the large bull males put on the most spectacular colour displays to try and attract a female and they really must show off, with 8/10 males to 1 female.
