Envisat fishes up facts behind Chilean giant squid invasion




"... These jumbo flying squid – Dosidicus gigas is their Latin name – are some of the largest known squids on the planet: the ones here measure between 70 to 150 centimetres in length, although specimens have been known to reach more than three metres. Making their home in the open ocean, they rise to the surface at night to aggressively feed on small fish using barbed suckers..."

Apparently scientists, due to the needs of local fisherman (who see the squid as competition), have been using advanced satellite technology to track the movements of these wierd, beautiful animals. What I want to know is why so many of them have been hanging around land in the first place...
