Friday Squid Blogging: China Launches Six New Squid Jigging Vessels

Post Syndicated from Bruce Schneier original https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2021/01/friday-squid-blogging-china-launches-six-new-squid-jigging-vessels.html

From Pingtan Marine Enterprise:

The 6 large-scale squid jigging vessels are normally operating vessels that returned to China earlier this year from the waters of Southwest Atlantic Ocean for maintenance and repair. These vessels left the port of Mawei on December 17, 2020 and are sailing to the fishing grounds in the international waters of the Southeast Pacific Ocean for operation.

I wonder if the company will include this blog post in its PR roundup.

Friday Squid Blogging: Searching for Giant Squid by Collecting Environmental DNA

Post Syndicated from Bruce Schneier original https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2021/01/friday-squid-blogging-searching-for-giant-squid-by-collecting-environmental-dna.html

The idea is to collect and analyze random DNA floating around the ocean, and using that to figure out where the giant squid are. No one is sure if this will actually work.

Diplomoceras maximum is an ancient squid-like creature. It lived about 68 million years ago, looked kind of like a giant paperclip, and may have had a lifespan of 200 years.

Friday Squid Blogging: Underwater Robot Uses Squid-Like Propulsion

Post Syndicated from Bruce Schneier original https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2020/11/friday-squid-blogging-underwater-robot-uses-squid-like-propulsion.html

This is neat:

By generating powerful streams of water, UCSD’s squid-like robot can swim untethered. The “squidbot” carries its own power source, and has the room to hold more, including a sensor or camera for underwater exploration.

I thought the virus doesn’t survive well on food packaging:

Authorities in China’s northeastern Jilin province have found the novel coronavirus on the packaging of imported squid, health authorities in the city of Fuyu said on Sunday, urging anyone who may have bought it to get themselves tested.
