Giant Squid Invade California: Cthulhu Unavailable for Comment

Ok, while not technically the Giant Squid of deep sea exploration, which can grow up to 60 feet, the Jumbo Squid which can get as long as 6ft, weighing up to 100 lbs have been invading the California Coast.

Apparently according to the Telegraph UK article, over 400 of the squid have been caught by fisherman since they started showing up en mass on Friday.

Though this species is not unknown along the California coast, never before have they been seen in such heavy numbers. While fisherman and cephalopod connoisseurs are celebrating the catch, it does lead one to wonder why so many of the Jumbo squid are appearing off the coast. With so many recent environmental changes in the world’s oceans could this migration be indicative of changes in the underwater world that humanity has yet to notice?
