Monster warning to protect oceans

The landing of a colossal squid by New Zealand fishermen earlier this year offered a rare glimpse into the mysterious world deep beneath the waves. Scientist Mark Norman uses this week's Green Room to argue that it also shows how marine life is being destroyed before it is understood.
I cannot see this as a highpoint of scientific discovery drawn from the distant reaches of our wild oceans
In the era of super science, nothing shows up how little we know of our own planet as finding massive "sea monsters".
