The squid or "Todarodes Sagittus" belongs to the Ommastrephidae family. Its natural habitat is a deep and sandy seabed. Their main fishing technique is a boat with an apparatus called a "totanara". This type of fishing consists of a bright object which at the tip has a series of hooks to a very sharp circular tip; this tool binds to a very long piece of fishing line that is lowered into the sea, down to the seabed. When the line is drawn the squid is attracted by the light and remains caught in these spikes. Fishing is usually done at night and when the sea is calm. Large fishing boats are used instead of special nets for squid fishing.
