Broadtail squid Rings

Broadtail squid is the name given to a certain species of marine molluscs that is similar in aspect to the European squid, with which it is often confused.
They are carnivorous, and their diet is comprised of pelagic, crustacean and invertebrate fish, in general. They inhabit the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea and Pacific Ocean, from areas that are practically on the surface down to depths of at least 800 m. At night they tend to move up to the surface of the water which is why fishing is preferably carried out at night, with jigs that use towed nets.
With respect to gastronomy, the dishes prepared with broadtail squid are practically the same as those based on European squid, although preferably cut up into rings or “rabas” (sticks).
