"Loligo pealeii," Wkipedia, the free encyclopedia.The Longfin squid is found in the North Atlantic, schooling in continental shelf and slope waters from Newfoundland to the Gulf of Venezuela.This species is a model organism in neuroscience and was used by Andrew Huxley and Alan Hodgkin in their studies on axons. They are also used for research on replicating their camouflage abilities due to the chromatophores in their skin, which reflect a different color depending on the angle at which the light is hitting them.
