Octopus about 18cm. Swam past as I was walking through shallow water
Octopus (first I've ever seen in wild), swimming rapidly across pool between rocks, then landing on bottom, then retreating behind seaweed.
Dead on sandy beach. About 1 m in length.
My first and only sighting of an octopus on tiri. It was travelling along the seabed off the end of the jetty. There was absolutely no ripple on the water - you could see straight down to the bottom with no distortion, have never seen it like that since.
Collected via dredge on F/V Gemma. Only Octopus I've seen in Woods Hole area. This one was in a whelk or some protection because it was fully intact when brought on deck. Kept in MRC for 2 weeks but died.
