Stubby squids, which grow to be about 2-1/2 inches long, are actually rather common in Northern Pacific waters. They spend much of their time feeding on shrimp in relatively shallow waters, averaging about 1, feet below the surface. So researchers were surprised to find a living individual some 2, feet deeper. “Encountering this individual significantly adds to what we know…
