  • Alternative Title:
    Northern shortfin squid, Illex illecebrosus, life history and habitat characteristics
  • Description:
    "The northern shortfin squid, Illex illecebrosus (Figure 1), is a highly migratory species of the family Ommastrephidae. Distributed across a broad geographic area, I. illecebrosus is found in the northwest Atlantic Ocean between the Sea of Labrador and the Florida Straits (66⁰N to 29⁰30'N; Roper et al. 1998). Throughout its range of commercial exploitation, from Newfoundland to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, the population is considered to constitute a single stock (Dawe and Hendrickson 1998). The southern stock component (inhabiting U.S. waters) is managed by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council, in accordance with the Atlantic Mackerel, Squid and Butterfish Fishery Management Plan (MAFMC 1998), and the northern stock component (inhabiting waters between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia) is assessed and managed by the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (Hendrickson et al. 2002). Both stock components are managed based on an annual quota. This Essential Fish Habitat Source Document provides information on the life history and habitat characteristics of northern shortfin squid. Data sources and methodologies used to prepare this document are described in Reid et al. (1999)"--Intro.
