In Warren Rathjen's 1973 "Northwest Atlantic Squids" (Mar. Fish, Rev.
35(12): 20-26) there is a picture of a "giant squid about 47 feet in overall
length taken by the vessel "Silver Bay" off the coast of Florida. The
specimen was later deposited in the collection of the University of
Miami...." Does anyone know anything else about this specimen? Has a
description been published elsewhere?
