I was wondering how easy it is to get ahold of a specimen of a bobtail squid (E. scolopes). Can you find a whole bobtail squid in a market in Hawaii? Or would you have to collect them yourself if you were interested in them. I'm doing a study for my microbiology class, and intend to isolate Vibrio fischeri from them (the bioluminescent bacteria they have a symbiosis with). But first I need to know if this is a practical idea.


Thanks!
