Cool.
I'm always interested in what comes out of the deep oceans.
We really know so little.
But Dang.....thats a lot of fish bait..33 ft and 1/2 ton!
Wouldn't have to buy bait for a few years with that one!

Cool find. It's so interesting that you can watch the scientists working on the squid live!

p.s. That squid is what nightmares are made of.
