The Hawaiian bobtail squid Euprymna scolopes is a cephalopod whose small size, short lifespan, rapid growth, and year-round availability make it suitable as a model organism. This protocol describes the preparation of whole juvenile squids by whole-mount immunocytochemistry for visualization by confocal microscopy.
