Here's a brief news article from ABC News Online regarding a plea from The Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute to fishermen to avoid trawling up squid monitors.

Fishermen asked not to haul in squid monitors

I imagine these are loligo squid they're referring to? :?:

Hi Tony,

"southern calamari" is the common name for Sepioteuthis australis, so they're loliginids. Let me tell you, those Tasmanian teuthologists can party. At the CIAC symposium they kept long hours drinking and singing karaoke late into the night! :beer: :band: :squid:

Tell them about TONMO.com next time you see them, sounds like they'd fit right in! :wink:
