California Market Squid Season


If this year is anything like the last few, it’s going to be a big squid season in California. In the past few seasons, squid fishermen have been able to catch their quota in record time. Its been a booming time for squid fishing.   With a harvest valued at 73 million dollars in 2010, it remains one of California’s most valuable fisheries.  This year is really just getting underway.   So far, commercial vessels have taken about 22 percent of the Total Allowable Catch.  However, the season was over by Nov. 18th last year.  Basically, its time to get in action.  Rumors are that a reality TV show is currently filming this seasons harvest, too.  Got any ideas what the show might be called?  Toss a few ideas on the facebook.  The pics are from my squid season in 2010 on the F/V Heavy Duty.
