Long-term sedation tests (>3days, continuous) were conducted with millimolar quantities of magnesium sulphate to enhance the condition and survival of firefly squid, Watasenia scintillans, during commercial transportation. A concentration of 20mmoll-1 produced the best result. After more than 80h under constant sedation, the animals revived within minutes of being transferred to fresh seawater and were apparently unharmed.
