This adult jumbo squid was caught by squid jig aboard the NOAA Ship David Starr Jordan during the 2007 juvenile shark survey near the Channel Islands. Jumbo squid have a large eye, seen here, which allows it to see in very low light settings, such as those deep underwater where it is typically found.
