If all the whales were suddenly removed from the ocean, the water level would drop by almost 30 feet.

But fortunately, giant squids, because they are lighter than water, raise the oceans by a compensating amount, thereby keeping them in balance.
Isn't Gaia wonderful!

No, the giant squid lives much deeper, where the water is more dense, and has less of an effect. Thirty feet is a conservative estimate for sea level drop from removal of all cetacean life from the oceans.

In fact, due to global warming, the sea level would be much higher... were it not for the re-introduction of whaling!
