Not just that, something had to cause death. Possibly a new virus...

But like they said, it could have been post spawning death. It's true he should have had a scientist take a look to see if that's the case though.... Peninsula gets dead squid.. and we here in the sound get.. oil spills -.-

That would make a good crop of Calamari! But I've been to the Royal BC Musuem many times I guess I didn't look hard enough to find the squids beak. Neat story.

If they were actual Giant Squids, the man would probably be looking at an incredibly heafty fine.
