Why squid?(still in japanese)

Tuna and shrimp are popular in japan. But the seafood which is most eaten in japan, is squid. Squid is easy to catch in the sea of Japan. Not only raw squid but also processed squids are on the market.
日本人が最も多く食べている水産物は、まぐろやえびではなく、いかです。いかは日本の至る所で漁獲され、生鮮品だけでなく加工されて様々な形で出回っています。
調理方法も、刺身、酢の物、フライ、天ぷら、サラダなど様々で、和食、中華、イタリアンとどんな料理にもよく合います。また、値段が手頃なうえ、いつでも利用できるようにサイコロやロール状にカットされて冷凍されるなど、使い勝手がとても良いのも特徴です。
