Species Identification Help

Postby RKMG » Tue Jul 24, 2018 9:05 am

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone could identify the name of this type of squid? My brother caught it off Killiney Bay but have never seen anything caught anything like that before around there? Was wondering are they common at all in that area?
