Seriously though, I wonder how much of a shift in populations from fish to squid is actually occuring, and how much of that can directly be attributed to human influence (decline or increase in fish stock).

I wonder how squid fisheries ("squidderies" if you prefer) will be affected by fishing, since direct predation by mammals and fish doesn't seem to hit the numbers too hard.
Nope. Squid are in decline around NZ, at least in the deep-sea they are.

I think I can back you on this Kat. I don't remember my source either, but I've heard that same thing. Very interesting prospect indeed. Also, if Staphylococcus aureus were allowed to propagate in optimal conditions indefinitely, every person in the world would be wading through 6 feet of bacteria in 24 hours. (Learned that in Evolution last term.)

Cheers!
