    Here's link to a nice Japanese website containing images and distribution maps of many cuttlefish and squid. It has an English translation which works, well, most of the time. Definitely worth a look.

    That's not a bad site, it even has Nototodarus sloanii:shock: Course they do fish for it in NZ waters......distribution's a bit off tho' They're not found in the upper half of the North Island!

    Oh, yes this site is comprehensive... Zen-Ika is a Japanese squid fishing government site. Steve gave me the e-mail of one of their reps two years ago to get some information on the protein count of squid. I wish Babelfish were a little more accurate in the translation of the page though... Maybe I should go learn Japanese after all.

    Yes I've often regretted not taking Japanese in school, but I'm terrible at languages, my French teacher gave up in dispair and I've been known to have trouble with English!

    Soooooooo what was the protein count of squid that they got? There is PhD thesis here at otago that looked at protein and lipid etc in
    N. sloanii. I'd need to look up the exact numbers but it would be an interesting comparison (asssuming they used a similar methodology!) I wonder if it changes from year to year, sp to sp etc etc

    Well, that's the problem... They never replied to my request for the nutritional information packet. Kind of annoying.

    frustrating......that happened so many time to me when I was doing my Masters, even wee note to say "sorry I haven't time to look out that info right now" would be less frustrating!
