Bigfin squid

It’s not every dive that deep-sea explorers encounter a bigfin squid (Magnapinna sp.).
It’s actually pretty unusual; roughly a dozen sightings have been confirmed worldwide.
So, when we captured an adult bigfin squid on camera during Dive 10 of Windows to the Deep 2021 off the West Florida Escarpment in the Gulf of Mexico, it was quite an exciting moment.
