Forum Improvements
New "Fishing Buddies" Forum
A forum has been created in the members-only area of the squidfish site to assist you to organise fishing trips with your fellow squidfish members! I hope this is helpful to you.

Cholesterol in Squid
Our new member Ace has provided some additional information on high levels of cholesterol found in squid and whether it really is a health concern. He provides evidence indicating that the cholesterol content of squid is only a small part of the picture.

Help Wanted – Squid Fishing Locations in Asia
I have done some preliminary research into squid fishing locations in Asia . However, I need help from persons who have lived (or still do live) in Asia to assist me to identify more squid fishing locations. In particular, I would like to obtain further information about squid fishing locations in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan , and Singapore. If you can help then please visit the Asia forum–

Help Wanted – Puget Sound Squid Research
A graduate student at the University of Washington is seeking help in collecting data on Puget Sound squid for a research project. If you would like to help, see the following topic –

Network Sites under Development
Given my keen interest in photography, particularly underwater photography, I have decided to setup a new website dedicated to underwater photography. I will be moving my existing photography articles (currently accessible via the Photo/Video section of the squidfish site) to the new website very soon. The new site offers me extra storage space and I can now put more of my underwater videos online. I have some underwater videos of squid and also some underwater shots of squid being caught with jigs so stay tuned!

The new site is – http://www.oceanphotography.net

I have completed a fair bit of research into squid jig patents which is currently accessible through the "Jig Design" section of the squidfish website. By studying patented inventions, I believe that we can better learn how innovative fishing tackle (eg. a squid jig) is made and this will inspire us to come up with even better tackle designs! Since this topic has to date, received very little attention, and since it extends beyond the realms of squid fishing, I have decided to create a new website to cater for this topic. I will be moving the squid jig patent information to the new site in coming weeks. I expect it will take a few years to build this site but I am in no rush! Of course the squidfish website will continue to be my main priority!

The new site is – http://www.fishingpatents.com

The current information is here - www.squidfish.net/japansquidjigpatents.shtml

Newsletter Feedback
I would appreciate any feedback on the design or content of this newsletter. Please send me any comments, good or bad!

Have a great day,
