The cephalopod was seen cruising Toyama Bay on Japan’s west coast, an area already known for its stunning firefly squid, which glow an iridescent blue and gather in the area to spawn. This squid, however, was an entirely different beast.

In May, not only birds lay eggs. The squid in the North Sea are starting that now as well! Photographer Sytske Dijksen found at the tip of the Texel Hors peninsula a string of European common squid eggs. Cephalopods lay their eggs in spring in strands on the seabed fastening them onto something solid. Yet they will sometimes come loose and wash up on the beach. At this time of the year you have the best chance to find squid eggs on the beach.
Sytske last year also found once strands of European common squid eggs. They had already fully developed. Because these egg strings are transparent you could see the squid embryos well. When she put the egg strand into water, the baby squid hatched! The egg strand of this month was not so far yet. One cannot yet recognize squid in it.

Rare Glimpse of a Neon Flying Squid
28 October 2013
VLIZ & Natuurpunt (Belgium) reported on Saturday 15 November 2014 (translated):
An European flying squid was found Tuesday on the beach of Nieuwpoort. This squid species lives normally lives far away at sea and visits coastal waters only rarely. A find on a beach is very remarkable. Possibly the extraordinary observation has a connection with the pod of long-finned pilot whales which was spotted yesterday off the coast.
Long-finned pilot whales feed on squid.

Scientists latch on to colossal squid
Huge specimen caught in Antarctic waters by New Zealand fishing crew is one of few ever examined

The live stream begins at 06:57: here.
Watch live online as specialists in squid biology from Te Papa and Auckland University of Technology undertake research on this rare find. This colossal squid and the specimen already on display at Te Papa are the only two of their kind caught intact – ever! Large colossal squid specimens in good condition are rarely available to scientists, so this latest example has caused great excitement.

Metro in Britain writes about this video from Japan:
Monday 13 Jan 2014 12:10 pm
It’s usually one of the mysteries of the deep – but an elusive giant squid has been found in a fishing net off the coast of Japan.
The 4m (12ft) beast was found by fisherman Shigenori Goto swimming in one of his fixed nets about 70m underwater off the coast of Sadogashima island.
After it was brought to the surface, the squid – later found to be male – died.
‘This is the first time I’ve seen such a large squid,’ Mr Goto told reporters in Japan.
Giant squids are rarely seen because of the depths at which they live.
The first footage of a live adult was not taken until 2002 and the largest one recorded by scientists was almost 43 feet long.
A recently reported sighting of one in California proved to be a hoax.
Squids and other invertebrates can probably feel pain: here.
