Loligo is a genus of squid and one of the most representative and widely distributed groups of myopsid squid. Squid of genus Loligo are widely consumed by humans. The squid are attracted to the water surface with lights and captured in nets by the hundreds of thousands of tons each year. This does not threaten the genus towards extinction because of its members’ prolific breeding habits. Loligo squid are available for fishing all year round and this greatly increases their desirability for industrial fisheries. This squid, when cooked, is what is commonly called calamari.
