I made a squid farm, but no squids are spawning. Can some one help me out?

The entire server shares a mob cap. Basically, if one player is near an ocean (or river or lots of ponds/lakes/swamps etc) squids are going to be spawning near them and taking up part of the mob cap reducing the possibility that squid will spawn near you. Now with servers that have dozens of players on simultaneously this can quickly result in really low spawn rates near a particular player. Basically farms relying on natural mob spawning are not very effective on large multiplayer servers.
