Two deep-sea squids in the genus Gonatus mate.
They also have developed a variety of complex social and survival behaviors. In a recent paper in Frontiers in Physiology Peter Morse from James Cook University and MBARI biologist Crissy Huffard summarize the variety of sexual and reproductive behaviors in cephalopods and discuss how these behaviors may help the animals survive. In general, shallow-water cephalopods typically grow fast, live for only a year or two, and die soon after spawning.
Deep-water cephalopods are more likely to spawn multiple times and live for at least several years.What Men And Women Want In Sex - HPL
This may help them cope with limited food and the challenges of finding mates. Here are a few of the surprising observations about cephalopod sex that Morse and Huffard describe in their article:.

Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute MBARI encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea.
The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts. September 12, Related news stories.
