    "The longfin inshore squid, Loligo pealeii, is a schooling species of the molluscan family Loliginidae (Figure 1). It is distributed in continental shelf and slope waters from Newfoundland to the Gulf of Venezuela, and occurs in commercial abundance from southern Georges Bank to Cape Hatteras. The fishery for longfin inshore squid is managed by the Mid- Atlantic Fishery Management Council under the Atlantic Mackerel, Squid and Butterfish Fishery Management Plan, Amendment 8 (MAFMC 1998). Within the range of commercial exploitation, the population is considered to be a single stock unit. This Essential Fish Habitat Source Document provides information on the life history and habitat characteristics of longfin inshore squid inhabiting the Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank, and the Middle Atlantic Bight"--Intro.
