Squid is one of the cephalopods that we work with at Conservas Valcárcel. These have an elongated tube-shaped body, in which two triangular fins can be distinguished at its upper end. It is covered by a smooth pink skin, almost transparent. The limestone shell inside is very peculiar as a skeleton. To move, it expels pressurized water through a tube as a siphon. To camouflage himself from his enemies, he has the ability to adapt his color to that of the environment and, if he is harassed, he shoots a jet of black ink.
It is the marine animal that has the highest proportion of edible parts in its entire body (between 60 and 80%). It is found in all the seas and oceans of the world.
Its ink is used for cooking and preparing stews.
