This is an interesting story that offers a possible explanation for the limbs washing up on beaches around Washington and Vancouver. Large squid are allegedly devouring fish stocks, and also fishermen in coastal waters from Chile all the way up to Alaska.
This is the story being told by Express.co.uk, and also in a BBC Channel Five documentary, titled Nature Shock: Killer Squid.
Millions of killer giant squid are not only devouring vast amounts of fish they have even started attacking humans.
The Humboldt Squid (Dosidicus gigas), also known as Jumbo Squid, Jumbo Flying Squid, or Diablo Rojo (Spanish for Red Devil), is a large, predatory squid found in the waters of the Humboldt Current in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. They are most commonly found at depths of 200–700 metres (660–2,300 ft), from Tierra del Fuego to California. Recent findings suggest the range of this species is spreading north into the waters of Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska.Though they usually prefer deep water, between 1,000 and 1,500 squid washed up on the Long Beach Peninsula in southwest Washington in the fall of 2004. They have also ventured into Puget Sound.
