A fishing boat was moored at the small harbor in Sokcho. Many big light bulbs were set on the deck. They were used for squid fishing. This city is famous for squid. Squid are attracted by its luminance and caught when it comes close to the ship.

I heard that octopus is highly intelligent. On the other hand, I have never heard squid is highly intelligent. Although they are similar, there was a difference between squid and octopus in intellectual faculties. Anyway, squid is decoyed by the light bulbs.
