Squid Egg Mass

Squid Egg Mass - Photo by Kathy County
One of my colleagues, Kathy, and her children, found many egg masses on Old Orchard Beach, over the weekend. I know that I've got some photography to do, if there are still more egg masses to see! (The mating seasons are very short in the ocean...) Next weekend's low tides at Popham Beach are: Saturday 7:08 am, Sunday 7:45 am, Monday 8:22 am. 

I believe we have Northern Shortfin Squid and Longfin Inshore Squid off the coast of Maine, but I don't know who laid these.
