Squid

Squid are cephalopods, a class which comprises around 300 species.  Species Morubel can offer include Dosidicus gigas (pota), Loligo,  Illex, Todarodes, depending on the application: in seafood cocktail, as squid rings, tentacles…

Squid are strong swimmers and certain species can 'fly' for short distances out of the water. Squid are caught at night by attracting them with light. The most spectacular species is Dosidicus gigas, called giant squid, Humboldt squid or pota. They can measure up to 2 metres (mantle), and have a reputation of being aggressive, thus their nickname “red devil”.
