Is it sustainable
There are numerous species of squid, some of which are caught in the north-east Atlantic and, with a few exceptions, are in plentiful supply and are often under-used, particularly in the UK. They grow quickly, which is a key point for sustainability.
Squid is an excellent source of the immune supportive mineral selenium, a lack of which has been linked with heart disease and cancer. It also supplies useful quantities of iodine which, with selenium, supports the thyroid and is vital for a healthy metabolism.
