I loved how they try to save the poor squid. This is an evasive species that will eat the remaining fish stock we have left. Little that it is.

There were reports that divers saw them two nights prior. Those squid must have been trying to warn us of the impending earthquake. I don't recall an earthquake two years ago when the beach and near shore were full of them. I was lucky to dive with them then here's a video of the event
