AMS USDA 12/01/16 Squid and Squid Byproducts. DAILYMAIL 23/05/16 Are SQUID the big winners from climate change? Cephalopods have flourished in the past 60 years despite environmental shifts. Although many fish species are in serious decline due to rising ocean temperatures and over fishing, it seems squid and octopuses are flourishing.
The cephalopods have increased in numbers over the past 60 years, according to new research. Squid, octopuses and cuttlefish are known to be highly adaptable and grow rapidly, which may be giving them an advantage as ocean environments change. Cephalopods, which include octopus, squid (pictured) and cuttlefish, have increased their numbers over the last 60 years due to their ability to adapt to changing environments. They are an important prey for many predators including whales, sharks and humans An international team of biologists, led by researchers at the University of Adelaide, compiled a database of global catch rates of cephalopod to investigate long-term trends in abundance. They published their findings in the Cell Press journal, Current Biology. But in some areas around the tropics, the decline may already be taking hold.
Dr. JOURNAL OF BIOGEOGRAPHY 24/08/16 Climate change and squid range expansion in the North Sea. This is the first comprehensive study that examines patterns in long-term squid distribution and abundance in the entire North Sea.
Both squid distribution and abundance increased in the North Sea over a 35-year study period. We present evidence that these patterns are closely linked with the long-term climatic warming trends in the North Sea as well as with more short-term inter-annual temperature variability. This was found to be the case for all squid combined and for the individual taxa examined (Loligo, Alloteuthis, and ommastrephids), although the responses to climatic and short-term temperature variability appeared to be species specific. Squid responses to climate The most widely distributed squid species in the North Sea and the one dominating the Loligo category was Loligo forbesii.
Alloteuthis dominated the shallow waters (< 50 m depth) of the southern and south-eastern parts of the North Sea during August and September. Implications for the North Sea ecosystem. JOURNAL OF FOOD SCIENCE - 2015 - Seasonal survey of contaminants (Cd and Hg) and micronutrients (Cu and Zn) in edible tissues of cephalopods from Tunisia: assessment of risk and nutritional benefits. Abstract : Concentrations of cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), mercury (Hg) and zinc (Zn) were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry in the muscle tissues (arms and mantle) of three commercial cephalopods (Loligo vulgaris, Octopus vulgaris and Sepia officinalis) caught in three different Tunisian coastal regions.
The highest concentrations found correspond to the essential elements Cu and Zn. Octopuses and cuttlefish showed the highest levels of those elements while squid presented with significantly higher values of Hg in both muscular tissues. This may be related to different feeding behavior and detoxification processes among benthic and pelagic cephalopods. Variation of element concentrations between seasons was different between species and seemed to be mostly dependent on the sampling site.

Peut-être même l'avez-vous facebookée ou tweetée tant elle était répugnante : des calamars seraient constitués d'anus de porc. Faux, enti. Des calamars frits aux... calamars (REX/Stuart Forster/REX/SIPA) Les scandales alimentaires ne nous ont pas épargnés ces deux dernières décennies.
Dioxine (1999), vache folle (1991/2003), langue bleue (2006), peste porcine (2002), grippe aviaire (2006-2007), OGM, et j’en passe. À peine remis du horsegate ou scandale de la viande de cheval dans les lasagnes de bœuf, du scandale de la tarte au chocolat aux matières fécales vendues dans un célèbre magasin de meuble ou de la souris dans un pot de confiture, voilà que les industriels remettent le couvert en nous proposant de faux calamars frits, soi-disant "composés d’anus de cochon". Vu les scandales précédents, cette nouvelle semblait de prime abord vraisemblable.

Breaking news today from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, out of its open-access journal Emerging Infectious Diseases: Researchers in Canada have identified a very highly resistant bacterium in squid imported from South Korea and being sold in a Chinese grocery store.
The letter reporting the finding was supposed to go live at noon ET, but hasn’t yet. When it does, it will be linked from this page, under the subheading Letters. It is titled: “Carbapenamase-Producing Organism in Food, 2014.” The letter, signed by Joseph E. Rubin, Samantha Ekanayake and Champika Fernando of the University of Saskatchewan, reports that, in the squid, they found a variety of a common bacterium, Pseudomonas, carrying a gene that directs production of an enzyme called VIM-2 carbapenemase. Most of the spread of carbapenem resistance has been through people, who picked it up in a hospital or acquired it accidentally from contaminated water, especially in south Asia.

UKCIP 20/06/13 Save the squid: CO2 increases threaten key species in marine food chain. Man-made CO2 changes the ocean’s acidity, as it dissolves into carbonic acid and alters the pH of the waters.
This higher acidity appears to have clear, detrimental effects on squid hatched and raised in it; they are smaller, and many show mutations of the crystal formations that allow them to orientate themselves whilst swimming and to detect movement. Threats to the survival of the Altantic longfin squid, which eats or is eaten by many of the ocean’s animals, have immense implications up and down the ocean food chain. It is an economically valuable species, bringing in $100 million for US fishermen in 2011; it is also food for species such as tuna and hake, other commercially important species. Marine reserves and catch limits are possible measures that could help species survive, but the CO2-driven change in ocean acidity has bigger implications. In evolutionary terms, 100 years is a very short window. DIRM MEDITERRANEE 08/10/14 Pêche de loisir des calamars dans la réserve naturelle des Bouches de Bonifacio.
