Friday Squid Blogging: The Contents of Squid Stomachs
Not that interesting, really.
Preliminarily, I can tell you that within my sample, cannibalism seems to be on the rise, myctophid consumption is falling, and a lot more squid may be dying hungry.

Fascinating. But I fail to see what it has to do with security.
It doesn't have anything to do with security, Fred. But Bruce is interested in squid and it's his blog so ...
You're new here, aren't you? ;P
You don't understand why this is related to Security?
Go read some books.
I doubt that cannibalism is any indicator - it could be that ceph's are becoming more common, and more common prey.
I'd suggest that average squid size is a better indicator, but even that could be hampered by a increase in the number of orca, or even a decrease in other orca prey.
When you've a creature that increases in size by a factor of 2000 in a couple of years, population and average size changes are pretty complex.
If anything, reports are that various squid are migrating into other areas (probably directly or indirectly due to current/temp changes) is going to mess with all the stats....
