Does anyone have information regarding procuring squid for a restaurant or any other type of commercial food operation? I'm doing a buyer's guide project for a food purchasing class and I'm having a lot problems locating info. Any information or any suggestions on where to find information on for example, market specifications like grading, common processed forms squid are sold in, common types of packaging would be most helpful.

I live in the united states. I feel like my questions are pretty broad so maybe to narrow it down a little bit, I'm trying to focus on specs of california market fish or loligo opulescence from that region.

Market squid is an important international commodity with the majority of the export product being frozen and shipped to China, Japan, and Europe for human consumption. In 2006, 46 percent of the catch landed was exported for a value of $28.8 million. Domestically, market squid is canned or used fresh for human consumption, and is increasingly used live and frozen as bait by recreational fishermen.
