SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Loliginidae

SPECIES NAME(s)

Inshore squids nei, (multispecies)

Squids caught in Chinese waters are not distinguished at the species level in available catch databases, however, the literature indicates that most belong to the family Loliginidae (Doryteuthis spp., Uroteuthis spp., etc.), referred to as inshore squids Guo et al. (2020). The term "nei" was added to the profile name to indicate the multi-species nature of this profile. 

A specific profile is available for Mitre squid - China, as it is one of the main species caught.


ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • An exploratory stock assessment of the main commercial squid species in China (Mitre squid, Uroteuthis chinensis) has been recently conducted by Wang et al. (2021)
