Hundreds Of Squid Wash Ashore Along Santa Cruz County Beaches
APTOS (CBS 5) — Scientists are investigating why at least several hundred dead squid suddenly washed ashore along the Santa Cruz County coast Sunday afternoon.
Witnesses said the Humboldt squid stranded themselves during high tide Sunday. Carcasses were found along a 12 mile stretch from Aptos to Watsonville.
“You just see them essentially killing themselves, and it’s just really weird to see it,” said graduate student Hannah Rosen of Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station.
Rosen said some people tried to put the squid back in the water, but the deepwater creatures swam back to shore.
IITM: Possibly tectonic movement… possibly fukushima radiation…. possibly release of methane from underwater shifts… possibly all of the above… possibly something else. I wish people cared more… California dreaming is really a nightmare, few seem to notice.
