Cuttlefish belong to the same group of animals as the octopuses, squid and nautilus and like a snail they are all molluscs. The scientific name for a cuttlefish is Sepia . Casseron is used as food in the Mediterranean, some parts of Asia and elsewehere. Its ink are used in various dishes such as Nero di Seppia and Crni Rižot is Italy and Croatia, respectively. In Asia, are dried and served fried as snack. In years gone by, Sepia ink which is derived from cuttlefish, was used by artists for their paintings. For the cuttlefish this ink is a decoy, a means of escape from predators. If a large fish were to attack a cuttlefish it would eject a cloud of dark brown, almost black ink towards its attacker, then they can escape their predators. In the Philippines, they are sold dried on the markets, in the groceries in plastic packs and served fried as snacks or breakfast food with Fried rice (Sinangag) or roasted over charcoal on barbacue stick and sold on the streets. Squid is also served in the same way. How I miss this grilled/roasted Sepia. Casseron is also known as Seiche.
