Description: 

Azorian fisherman jigging for L. forbesii 5km offshore if Isla Faial in about 300m of water. The large white tank was installed to allow the capture and live transport of females of this species back to holding tanks on shore in the hopes of getting egg-laying. Note the huge male on top of the tank which measures 1.2m in the dimension the squid is laying. A small electric bilge pump, connected to the blue hose, was hung over the side to provide continuous water exchange in the tank.
