Caught

Squid is mostly caught using jigs in Malta.

However, internationally, Squid may also be caught with bottom trawls, midwater trawls or demersal otter trawls, which can have moderate to high levels of by-catch.

Availability

Facts

Squid can swim faster than any other invertebrate by rapidly expelling water from its mantle cavity. It shoots out a cloud of dark ink when threatened.

Our suggestion

Squid is caught using relatively sustainable fishing methods and its rate of reproduction makes it highly resilient to fishing pressure, fish for tomorrow recommends squid for consumption.
