+ - Giant squid caught near Japan

Submitted by Frankenbuffer
Frankenbuffer (883657) writes "Researchers on a quest to find a live giant squid succeeded in filming one south of Tokyo. They used a smaller bait squid to lure the giant squid to the water's surface. [Globe & Mail http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM .20061222.wbigsquid1222/BNStory/Science/home%5D

The giant squid, a young female about 7 metres long, put up quite a fight as it was brought aboard the research vessel. It died in the process. The researchers believe that giant squid may be more plentiful that believed previously."
