    STRESS shallow water, coastal species - NOT DEEP-SEA species, where in fact the opposite is likely true!!!

    Nononononononono, do it in SUMMER, then those evil octo-fishermen and tourists will be afraid to swim, and you'll have your cove, all to yourself.

    I'm not convinced. Not that its not possible; rather are they taking into account current shifts and water temp changes which would cause squid to move into waters they avoided before?

    Oceanic squid biomass is VERY hard to calculate accurately. Given that these populations are dynamic in their behavior and movement, it can be assumed that squid are simply moving into new niches left behind by the collapsed fisheries and such.

    As far as "giant' squid are concerned, I would love to see the Q10 of growth size vs. water temperature any day. Any papers out there?

    Sushi and Sake,

    John
