Giant Squid Found, Caught Alive [VIDEO] In Japan After Three Other 2014 Reports: How Much Sashimi Can The Dead Body Size Make?

Recent, another giant squid has been found measuring at 11 feet long off the coast of Japan.

According to Telegraph, the giant squid was found Monday evening off the Tottori prefecture coast, where fishermen were attempting to catch flatfish and crabs.

Amazingly, the giant squid was caught alive, but died before reaching shore on Tuesday.

Although it measured at 11 feet long, two of its longest tentacles were missing, which could have extended the creature to 26 feet long. Even so, it still weighted at a whopping 220 pounds.

Reportedly, the giant squid was caught 790 feet underwater, when they generally inhabit between 980 to 4,920 feet.

"This shows that the squid was swimming at that depth, so I think this is significant," says researcher Toshifumi Wada.

Many local residents immediately wondered how much sashimi this giant squid body could make. Sadly, the amount of ammonium would make it rather unpleasant to eat.

This is not the first 2014 report of a giant squid being found off the coast of Japan.

Last month, a giant squid was caught off the island in Niigata Prefecture measuring 13 feet long.

Last Sunday, a dead giant squid was also found washed ashore a beach in Kashiwazaki city in Niigata as well.
