Hello from Canada

I'm a British Columbia diver now living at Ottawa - and having to commute across the country to get close to an octopus these days ;)

I used to fish commercially for octopus (Pacific Giant Octopus) and swimming scallops (Pink and Spiny Scallops) in the waters off Victoria, BC. This was back when we could get away with two divers - one tending, one diving.

I have a blog up and running with additional photos of octopus and some diving information that may be of interest to fellow tentaclists ;) www.octopus-diver.com or www.octopusdiver.blogspot.com

Ditto for out East. I'm from Ontario, but out in Halifax right now for university. Always good to have a extra Canuck on the boards.

Cheers!
