A friend from DownEast was just over yesterday and asked if I knew there are octopus around here. I did not. He said they are so small they would fit in a specimen container. I will have to put the word out or ask my fishermen / lobster / crabbers friends to keep a lookout for one or two for me.

Came across this:
Octopus peali Lesueur
