Another flying squid similar to Todarodes pacificus, but the Tree of Life website says that it’s probably Ommastrephes bartramii. On the Sea of Japan, photographed by Geoff Jones.
The photograph clearly illustrates certain features, including the webbing/gliding membranes, wide lateral fins, and the bright blue marking above the eyes.
