Researchers at Stanford University strapped cameras on squid off the coast of Mexico and found the sea creatures likely use visual patterns to communicate and to camouflage themselves, according to a study released this week.
Most of the squid caught in California usually travels about 12,000 miles before it hits your plate. Now, there is a movement to cut down on the distance.
Scientists are investigating why at least several hundred dead squid suddenly washed ashore along the Santa Cruz County coast Sunday afternoon.
California’s market squid fishermen are hauling in record numbers as ocean conditions have for the third-straight year helped them net the legally allowed maximum.
