PZ Myers reguarly blogs about squid; here's an interesting post. It seems that squid grow up fast and die young, and are replacing some slow-maturing fish in the oceans.

> squid grow up fast and die young

So what you're saying is that squid are the rock-n-rollers of the oceanic world?

Thanks for the pointer! I can't resist Cairnarvon's quip: "If you're going to have squid fisheries, you should at least call them squisheries."

Now I'll have to go decipher "While M. ingens is epipelagic during its juvenile stage it undergoes an ontogentic descent to take up a demersal existence ."
