Market squid have been clogging the saltwater cooling pumps of these mammoth ships, causing overheating and interfering with the transfer of oil from the ships to the shoreline.So sportfishing boats saved the day by anchored near the supertankers with even brighter lights, attracting the squid away from the pumps into the relative safely of . . . the sportfishing boats. Yup.
Sportfishing Boats Save Squid From Supertankers
Strange but true! Oil supertankers cool themselves by pumping water from the ocean through their overheated innards, but as it turns out, there's more than just water in the ocean.
