Faunal associations, environmental data and locations of squid remains (carcasses, egg sheets) on the bottom of the Gulf of California. The number in parentheses after the Observation refers to the number of fragments observed in that frame grab. The numbers with letters after them (e.g. 9a and 9b) were also assumed to be from the same sheet because, while not in the same video frame, they were very close together. The ROV frame grabs on which these observations are based can be found at http://mbari.org/squid-carrion-images.;Calculations and estimations of carbon content and carbon contribution of squid carrion;Calculations of carbon flux associated with squid carrion. The estimated number of carcasses refers to the observations of squid carcasses plus the number of egg sheets. It is assumed that for each egg sheet a squid carcass was deposited and consumed by bottom scavengers. Squid carbon is calculated as 9.9% of the squid wet weight.
