Market squid runs off La Jolla Shores beach

Lately the market squid (Loligo opalescens) have been causing quite the stir in the local dive community here in San Diego. They can be found in large numbers all along La Jolla Canyon off of La Jolla Shores beach. The videos below were taken by a member of Dr. Jaffe’s lab, Justin Haag, using a GoPro camera.

Not only are they interesting to observe, but other animals have also taken an interest.

You can get more information about the squid and watch more videos over at the Southwest Fisheries website.
