A Review of the Biology of Opal Squid, Loligo Opalescens Berry, and of Selected Loliginid Squid Fisheries

Microform - 2002
Rate this:
Opal squid (Loligo opalescens) are relatively small squids found only on the west coast of North America. The species is particularly difficult to assess & manage because of its short (about one year) life span. This report begins with a review of the literature on the biology of opal squid, including its taxonomy, physical characteristics, life history, reproduction, trophic relations, parasites & disease, and population structure & dynamics. It then reviews the fisheries for loliginid squid in British Columbia & around the world, including information on fishing effort, landings, and management. This is followed by discussion of ecosystem considerations, assessment techniques, and management strategies for opal squid fisheries. Finally, recommendations are made regarding the development of the British Columbia opal squid fishery.
