Monterey Bay's annual winter invasion of the squid — which can grow up to 6 feet long and weigh about 100 pounds — continues to boost local sports-fishing businesses as wranglers seek giant fresh squid.
Imagine being able to treat your guests to an adventure exploring inner space. Triton Submersibles are the most advanced personal luxury submarines in the world. Remember, seven tenths of the planet is ocean.
A quest, beautiful bioluminescence and an adventure into the deep ocean are the key ingredients of this gripping film, first shown in the US on Nat Geo Wild in November 2011.
As usual the Ammonite team invent systems to allow investigation of animals and habitats that we know so little about. The route is via Belize and Mexico before we get to Giant Squid Central, way out in the Atlantic Ocean. Somewhere near the Azores we finally lower our Starlight Camera to depths of 500 metres to see if we can come eye to eye with this mysterious animal.
