Descripción del proyecto

Cephalopod mollusc with an elongated body, smaller than the common squid. It has two tentacles and eight arms on its head. The most prized are those smaller than 10 cm and caught by hand with hooks.

Its ink sac serves as protection and is also of great culinary value.  Its name derives from the Latin word calamarius (inkwell).

Squid fishing is very common in Galicia, generally in the summer months.

It stands out for…

  • High protein content
  • High content of omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA)
  • Vitamins B2 and B12
  • High in minerals such as phosphorus
  • Source of vitamin B3 and zinc.
