Arrow Squid

Arrow Squid


Nototodarus sloanii is a species of squid commonly known as the New Zealand arrow squid or Wellington flying squid. N. sloanii is a favoured prey species of a number of marine mammals and diving birds. It is an important food source for the endangered yellow-eyed penguin, Megadyptes antipodes. N. sloanii is sought by trawler fishermen for human consumption; in this trawling process, Australian sea lions are frequently killed, since they prey upon N. sloanii.(Source:
