The small squid often called calamari were caught in record numbers over the past two years, and 2012 appears to have been nearly as robust.
The state recorded a record-breaking 133,642 tons in the 2010-2011 season; that was beat in 2011-2012 with 134,910 tons, which translated into more than $69 million.
