    Hey everyone, was just wondering if you could recommend the best option for obtaining an octopus here in Florida? Seems like the bimac is a favorite, and haven't read much on the native floridian one but perhaps that would be a good one for me too... I've just started my research on this topic so any advice you all have I'm all ears. Thanks!

    See my other post, but I think there are a few Florida divers who will try to collect particular species on request... Dwhatley has one or two contacts in that department, I think.

    Not sure about Florida collecting laws, but if it's legal, i'm sure you'd have no problem finding a few O. mercatoris.
