Animal Ethics

The following information was supplied relating to ethical approvals (i.e., approving body and any reference numbers):

This work was completed in 2012, prior to when IACUC approval was needed for cephalopod animals at our institution.

DNA Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding the deposition of DNA sequences:

Sequence data is provided with the manuscript as supplementary FASTA file.

Data Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding data availability:

Sequences, raw data and R code used for the analyses are all provided as Supplemental materials.

For simplicity, we have opted to provide the data with the paper rather than archiving with a third party repository.

Funding

This work was supported primarily by a NOAA National Marine Sanctuaries Program award (MOA grant No. 2005-008/66882) to RJT and two Marie Curie Actions of the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under REA grant agreements 302957 and 600391 (FELLOWSEA: Campus do Mar International Fellowship Program) to IF-S. Additional funding was provided to HYW through the University of Hawaiʻi, Department of Biology Edmondson Grant. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
