I need some assistance identifying a marine organism. My
brother-in-law captains a ship in the Gulf of Mexico and their ROV
recorded video of an unidentified marine organism. Some believe
that they've seen a giant squid and others think its a large species of
jellyfish. The pipe in the middle of the video is a marine riser
and is 36" in diameter. If you check the left side of the
screen you'll see it swim upward past the riser as the ROV slowly pans
down. It's tough to estimate size though because they're not sure exactly
how close they were to the riser. The ROV descends approximately
25' during the clip. Some estimate the creature to be 75-100' in
Any assistance, guesses, or thoughts would be appreciated.
