My Sunday paper, Providence Journal shows a picture of a scientist in North Kingstown, RI disecting a 6 foot long squid they identified as "jumbo flying squid". The write up stated that a fisherman caught 3 of these squid off Block Island, RI.

Now I understand that "jumbo flying squid" is another name for Humbolt squid when I checked around online. This is pretty far from their expected range but I found reference to these squid being found in Alaska too.

If this is true, where someone caught 3 of these in RI waters, maybe there will be more....who knows?

I kinda didn't believe you there :lol

Extremely strange catch. But, people have caught tarpon in Narragansett Bay, so nothings impossible.

Got a "404" in August of 2011 on the second link.

However, Giant Squid are supposed to be world wide. And that's all I know about them.
