This boils down to what's quoted above. So do we know how to catch octopuses with torches? Are they attracted to that light during low tide?

I hate this guy. He is all about ooo look at all the strange stuff I will eat to "survive". Its a bunch of carp if you ask me. Now Man Woman Wild is actually interesting... Though it was painful to see them eating a maxima clam and I found out that 10 maxima clams have the same nutritional value as 1 bannana. They also tried eating a sea cucumber... apparently it was very nasty.

In Octopus and Squid The Soft Intelligence Cousteau talks about octopuses being interested in their torches and getting burned but I wonder if they are really talking about squid in the brief.
