It was mortally wounded during the capture, but the CNN article says that this was the first time a giant squid was caught on film.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/science/12/22/giant.squid.ap/index.html

Did not appear that the researchers were ready to deal with a live animal.  Then again, exactly how do you go about pulling a 24-foot squid into your boat without somebody getting hurt?

haven't seen that video.  I watched the special on tv (think it was Discovery Channel) where a guy rigged up a time lapse camera to a hunk of bait and got the squid on tape.

A great moment for science, in my book.  Up there with the finding of the coelocanth.

I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

I agree, I have an ambivalent attitude toward this kind of thing, it's a shame the squid got killed but it might increase our understanding of the ocean's ecosystem and so it may actually save a lot of animals from dying, though I don't think the squid in question would agree with that.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
