Big diamond squid fighting for its life when caught on hook from the fishing boat

NOTE: The squid is in soft focus. Diamond Squid is a specie that lives in depths of the world ocean. It is commercially fished all over the world even there is very little known about the impact it may make or the specie itself. This one released its ink in attempt to escape the hit of a hook that came from the fisherman's boat. This photo was taken in Dominican Republic where local fisherman spend all day on the sea to catch one or two of these in average 20 kg squid.
