Come Dive Along With Us at Catalina Island: CalamariCare

by

Many Market Squid gather at Fourth of July Cove, Catalina.

The California Market Squid lives from Alaska to Baja, Mexico.  They only live for 4-9 months!  Their brief life cycle has four stages: eggs, hatchlings, juveniles, and adults.  These eggs laid by the females will take 3-5 weeks to hatch.  These squid are not only important to the ocean ecosystem but for human consumption as well.  Knowing more about them help keep tasty squid in our markets.
