Anne Shaffer of Coastal Watershed Institute writes: “… We’ve not seen these in the Elwha nearshore before. Squid have historically been a very important food resource for our region’s salmon and marine birds. They all but disappeared from our radar 15 or so years ago-but seem to have returned to the central Strait nearshore this summer and fall. An exciting new observation for Elwha nearshore that we hope is a harbinger for our future marine ecosystems.”
