Product Description

Argentine illex squid, also known as Patagonian squid, is a highly sought-after seafood delicacy for its unique taste and texture. This type of squid is mainly caught in the cold and nutrient-rich waters of the South Atlantic, specifically in the waters around Argentina and the Falkland Islands. Argentine illex squid is a popular choice for chefs and home cooks alike because of its mild, sweet flavor, firm texture, and versatility in cooking.
One of the reasons why Argentinian illex squid is so highly regarded is because of its high nutritional value. It is an excellent source of lean protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscle tissue, and it is low in fat, making it a healthy food choice. Argentine illex squid is also high in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, iron, and zinc, which are all essential for maintaining a healthy body.

Squid Industry in Argentina

The Argentine illex squid industry has been experiencing significant growth in recent years.
Argentina's location provides a competitive advantage in the global seafood market. The country has a long coastline along the South Atlantic, which is rich in nutrients and supports a diverse marine ecosystem. This allows Argentinian illex squid to be caught in abundance, making it a cost-effective option for buyers.
Furthermore, the Argentinian government has implemented policies and regulations to support the growth of the seafood industry, including investing in infrastructure, improving fishing techniques, and promoting sustainability. This has made it easier for seafood businesses to operate and export their products globally.
