Diners know it as calamari, but in the seafood business, we call it squid. Calamari is the Italian name for squid. Battered and fried squid is commonly served as an appetizer. We deliver squid to restaurants and food service locations throughout Maryland, especially in Baltimore, Ocean City and Washington DC.
Squid is a mollusk related to the cuttlefish and octopus. It has ten tentacles, and like its cousin, the octopus, it also releases a dark ink into the water when it senses danger. Fine dining restaurants may use the squid ink in certain dishes.

Calamari meat is firm and white with a mild, slightly sweet and almost nutty flavor. Squid ranges from one inch in size up to eighty feet(the giant squid), but the most common size for eating is less than twelve inches. The body is commonly called the tube.

Squid is caught fresh from North Atlantic or Asian waters, meticulously cleaned and frozen for optimal freshness.

We sell several frozen squid / calamari products:

•Squid T and T (domestic)
•Squid T and T (imported)
•Squid Tube (domestic)
•Squid Tube (domestic)

In the list above, T and T stands for Tube and Tentacles. Call 410-288-2722 to place an order. We’d love to be your squid / calamari supplier.


As local seafood distributors, we deliver fresh from the sea. Everything arrives at our facility on ice, and leaves on our trucks in less than 24 hours. All of the trucks in our fleet are fully refrigerated, allowing us to offer deliveries at the optimum temperature. We pre-cool our trucks before loading and stacking the products on pallets.

Food safety is our #1 priority. We are fully HACCP certified through the FDA in all areas. HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.
