These video clips show Humboldt squid (scientific name Dosidicus gigas) hunting fish in Monterey Bay. These voracious predators can grow to over two meters (6.5 feet) long. Unlike many larger predators, Humboldt squid can hunt at depths where the water contains very little dissolved oxygen. Humboldt squid appear to be expanding their range northward along the California coast. This video was taken by researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) using a remotely operated vehicle (a type of robot submarine).MBARI dive video V-2277-01; Lat 36.7 N; Long 122.0 E
