Monterrey, California – Surveys indicate that large numbers of a jumbo squid species, Dosidicus gigas, have swarmed into the coastal waters of Northern California. Known popularly as the Humboldt squid, the animal is a ravenous and not very particular competitor with sharks and tuna for food supplies. These squid reach sizes of 2m/7ft and weigh up to 50kg/110lbs.
