Cuttlefish

Cuttlefish is a cephalopod, a marine mollusk with a unique internal calcified shell commonly known as a cuttlebone, related to squid and octopus. They have eight arms and two tentacles.

They eat small crabs, shrimps, and some types of fish. Mostly shallow-water animals, although they can go to great depths, found in tropical and temperate coastal waters.

Man uses cuttlefish as a source of food, a source of black ink, and we use the cuttlebone, as a dietary supplement providing calcium for cage birds.

Health benefits of cuttlefish:

  • Very low in saturated fat.
  • Good source of vitamin C, B12.
  • An excellent source of protein and calcium.

Vima presents cuttlefish perfectly cleaned in various sizes with the black ink used in pasta dishes and risotto.

The meat of the cuttlefish has a meatier texture than squid and also sweeter in flavor. Chefs much love ink for its rich, seaweedy flavor and its tar-black glossiness.
