A close-up video of BoreoAtlantic Armhook Squid, Gonatus fabricii in the deep waters of the Canada Basin.
This squid species is common in the sub-arctic waters of the Atlantic, where it can be sufficiently abundant to support commercial fisheries. In places where it is abundant this squid is a major predator, also serving as prey for many fishes and marine mammals. The squid may be an important component of the open-water food web of the high Arctic, but we know very little about its occurrence there.
