On the 30-31 May Big Squid are travelling down to Porthkerris in search of Basking Sharks, There is no guarantee that we will find them but at the same time of year on a previous trip to Cornwall we have seen several of the huge plankton eating sharks. You can find out more about the trip here

The bizarre-looking creature, which is new to science, was filmed 8,145m beneath the waves, beating the previous depth record by nearly 500m.

Several other new species of fish were also caught on camera, as well as huge crustaceans called supergiants.

The animals were discovered during an international expedition to the Mariana Trench, which lies almost 11km down in the Pacific Ocean.Read more
