a shoal of squid. I've never heard of a word for octos or cuttles, maybe because they tend not to congregate en masse so much.

Well, I have not found anything official so far. So in the absence of precedence, I am going to propose the following: An Embrace of Octopuses. As pointed out, we don't usually find octopuses hanging out in numbers. Except maybe a mother with her clutch. But there you go. Anyone else have other ideas?

I like cuddle of cuttlefish and Embrace of octopuses.

How about a "clunk of nautalises"
