VIDEO: Fishermen catch 360-pound giant squid

Giant Squid

Japanese fishermen accomplished what scientists have been only able to dream about — catch a "live" giant squid.

From Reuters via Outside:

"We were about 30 minutes into our day when this large, reddish-brown thing came swimming up from the depths," Goto, 44, told Reuters about the fishing expedition off the coast of Niigata, northwest of Tokyo.


The squid, a male weighing 163 kg (360 pounds), died shortly after being pulled to the surface last Wednesday and was trucked to a research institute.
