Fish ID Friday – Caribbean reef squid

29 July 2016

Sepioteuthis sepioidea, or the Caribbean reef squid.  Okay, technically a squid isn’t a fish, it’s a mollusc, but this feature is more about cool things I can identify underwater.  We often see these in the shallows when diving or snorkelling, swimming in schools and moving in formation. They are quick and hard to catch on camera and translucent, changing colour as you swim after them. Apparently they can launch themselves out of the water and fly for up to 10 metres before re-entry but I haven’t seen that!
