Humboldt Squid Seem to Be Thriving--Thanks to Ocean Dead Zones: Scientific American
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Although many of the Pacific Ocean's big species are floundering, one large creature of the deep seems to be flourishing. The Humboldt squid (Dosidicus gigas, also known as jumbo squid, owing to its sizable nature) has been steadily expanding its population and range: whereas sightings north of San Diego were rare 10 years ago, the squid are now found as far north as Alaska...
