Giant squid 'taking over world'

By Simon Benson

GIANT squid are taking over the world, well at least the oceans, and they are getting bigger.

According to scientists, squid have overtaken humans in terms of total bio-mass.

That means they take up more space on the planet than us.

The reason has been put down to overfishing of other species and climate change.

A report in the Australian science journal, Australasian Science, said marine researchers are now in universal agreement that cephalopods have been given an advantage not available to any other sea creature.

STRESS shallow water, coastal species - NOT DEEP-SEA species, where in fact the opposite is likely true!!!

Nononononononono, do it in SUMMER, then those evil octo-fishermen and tourists will be afraid to swim, and you'll have your cove, all to yourself.
