Argentine shortfin squid (Illex argentinus): captured off the southern coast of Argentina by freezer jiggers that use powerful spotlights to attract the squid to the surface and catch them in fishing gear comprising pots containing a fluorescent lure with multiple hooks. The squid are caught one by one and hoisted alive and intact to the deck. The ultra freezing process employed by freezer vessels maintains their freshness and natural qualities, guaranteeing a high-quality product. Argentine shortfin squid is used for squid rings and deep-fried squid rings.
