Rare squid and pomfret on Dutch beach

Sagittal quid on Dutch Vlieland beach

The blog of the forestry service on Vlieland island in the Netherlands reports a rare squid, stranded on the beach, yesterday 4 December.

It was a sagittal squid. The first time for that species on that island this year. On nearby Texel island, three specimens have beached so far this year.

In November, an Atlantic pomfret beached on Vlieland. Though this fish, usually living in Atlantic Ocean depths, is rare in the Netherlands as well, it does occur every year.
