Abstract: Much of our present knowledge about
the species composition and distribution of
cephalopods of the Pacific Ocean is derived
from collections made on cruises of the "Albatross,"
steamer of the U.S. Fish Commission,
during the late nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries. "Albatross" collections along the west
coast of North America were taken mainly off
California and Central America or Alaska, and
comparatively few collections were made off
Oregon (Townsend, 1901). Neither Berry
(1912) nor Hoyle (1904) lists any cephalopods
taken off Oregon. A description of a new
species of squid (Pearcy and Voss, 1963) and
an abstract (Pearcy, 1963) are the only reports
of pelagic cephalopods off Oregon. Clearly,
more data are needed before comparisons of
fauna and generalization on zoogeographic distribution
can be made.
