A close-up video of Boreo Atlantic 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 and also serves 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.
