The squid Alloteuthis subulata (Cephalopoda: Loliginidae) is a small species, widely distributed in shallow coastal waters of the north-eastern Atlantic and adjacent waters. It is commercially exploited in some areas, principally as by-catch, but it is not considered to be economically important at present, and very little is known about its ecology. Nevertheless, it is considered to be an important species since it appears to be an abundant predator of small fish and is itself preyed upon by a number of larger marine animals. This review provides current knowledge on the zoogeography, biology and ecology of A. subulata across its north-eastern Atlantic range.
