He drew attention to the importance of cephalopods in marine ecosystems and as fisheries resources. Through his research and that of his students he significantly advanced the knowledge of cephalopod systematics, distribution and biology. An insight into Gil Voss' ideas and attitudes concerning cephalopod research and teaching is given. Voss's broad interests are indicated in his bibliography of over 210 diverse published items, including 73 book reviews, 16 editorials, and 124 research papers on cephalopods, fishes, crustaceans, botany, zoogeography, history of oceanography, anthropology, fisheries, and marine and deepsea biology.
