By the English definition, underwriters are in the corporate insurance business. If you'd like to insure my interpretation, by all means do.:wink:

Clem you are going to be somewhat annoyed with me. I forgot that Dr. Remselo kindly asked me to review the content before posting it. I need to do some more work and have sent him a follow-up for some additional information as well. However I can leave you with this:

1) He sent me photos and details about Antarctic toothfish that were clearly damaged by M. hamiltoni. I've asked for some further detail from the studies he conducted to learn more about facts surrounding the toothfish (their depth, size, etc.)

2) He sent me some impressive photos of colossal squid tentacles replete with its eviscerating swivel hooks

3) Photo of said tentacles found in stomach of toothfish

4) Photo of sucker rings

5) one or two additional photos of the colossal squid itself

To whet your appetite attached is a photo of "Marat Yukuchev with tentacles" - copyright Alexander Remselo. This photo was taken 2011-2012 during the voyage around Antarctic on board the S. Korean longliner Hong Jin #701.

Not annoyed at all, Tony, sounds like you're doing everything right (and doing right by Remeslo).

1. Cool.
2. Very cool.
3. Wait, what?
4. Cool.
5. Yes.

Looking forward to all of it.

Clem
