She "died from injuries sustained during the capture".

i understand that once they are out of the water , squids don't have much of a chance of surviving .
i imagine they'd die from the "bends" once being brought up from great depth .

Not sure about bends. Anyway, they don't have skeletons. I think fish have some bladder type depth compensation system that leaves them vulnerable to rapid changes in pressure. Squids don't have this. Now, I have no idea where I picked this information up. Might just be a product of my own imagination.

I was just watching a show on the giant squid a couple weeks ago, and the fact they got a picture of it underwater at the time was a huge breakthrough. Pretty cool...they're very deep, which is why they're almost impossible to capture. They don't know a ton about them.

I think they are fascinating.

I watched a documentary about them too, and I never realized how quickly they could change colors.

I knew they could go from light to dark, and I guess other colors, but their bodies literally flickered the colors like a strobe light!

It was so quick, it was like watching the sun glint off the surface of water.

I thought it looked really quite sad, like the guy in Futurama with the multinose.

There are some biologists who theorize that squid might be highly intelligent. I saw a TV documentary where their hunting strategies were shown, they appeared to be thinking as they hunted their prey.

That's what makes the fact that they killed the thing while capturing it such a shame.

Big deal. They killed a giant squid while capturing the first live one in documented history.

But OH NO, it DIED!

NZ fisherman catch collosal squid. It took two hours to land it and was nearly dead when they got it aboard. Then they froze it. Isn't there a way to keep these things alive? Pressure tanks?bbc
