The results of studies on the biological aspects such as sexuality, sex ratio, size at first maturity, spawning, age and growth, distribution of adults, food, predators,Iife-history and distribution of juveniles of three species of squids Loligo duvaucelii, Sephreuthis lessoniana and Doryteuthis sibogae are presented.
