    Octopuses crash stone crab season
    For SW Florida commercial fishermen, invasion bad news

    I find it interesting that only parts of FL are seeing our critters being a big problem. Have the group here learned something about fishing or are they just over abundant?

    I wonder if this is where all the Vulgaris have gone since they left the Tampa. Its about 100 miles to Lee county. This seems to have happened since the oil spill. All I know is there have been no Vulgaris here since the oil spill and there used to be plenty. Crabbers are happy around here. I guess I need to take a trip down there and meet a few crabbers in hopes of being able to get a young vulgaris.

    I don't think so. These all seem to be O. briareus. Prior to the extreme cold winter of 2010, O. mercatoris was also frequently found in the crab traps. It seems hard to believe mercs eat adult blue crab though. I suspect they were more likely eating the bait but O. briareus is definitely the invader in the article.

    FIS World News - MAURITANIA
    Friday, August 29, 2014, 03:50 (GMT + 9)

    For three months octopus will not be allowed to be caught in Mauritanian waters, following the ban enacted by the Government of this country from 21 August.
    The measure was adopted after evaluating a request from fishermen and SMCP supply company, who proposed the suspension of the fishing activity given the oversupply and falling prices.
    The president of the Federation of Artisanal Fisheries, Sidi Ahmed Ould Abeid, explained EFE agency that the Ministry of Fisheries and Maritime Economy published a "commercial decree," which aims to facilitate the sale of "enormous reserves of frozen octopus based on existing prices between producers and customers, especially the Japanese ones."
    He said that inventories of frozen octopus total 6,000 tonnes at present, a volume representing three-quarters of all the frozen species.
