Synonyms: Doryteuthis opalescens; Loligo opalescens; Loligo stearnsii

Wikipedia Abstract

Doryteuthis opalescens, the opalescent inshore squid, is a small squid (mantle length (ML) up to 190 mm) in the family Loliginidae. It is a myopsid squid, which is the near shore group and that means that they have corneas over their eyes. The species lives in the eastern Pacific Ocean from Mexico's Baja California peninsula to Alaska, United States, and as an inshore squid it can be found with a range of 200 miles (320 km) off the shore.
