We saw very few seabirds and almost no pelagic fishes. However, at night hoards of squid would swarm under the lights; we even found a freshly killed giant squid (Architeuthis sp). Not surprisingly, we found the large squid biomass to be supporting a large number of sperm whale pods; sperm whales primarily feed on squid.
