    Hello, I am trying to find some octopus eggs for my dissertation. I have been talking to Dr. James Wood about getting them from abroad and he said it would be fine so long as they are recently laid.
    I don't need them for another 3 months, but if anyone knows of a company or may even be able to source the eggs themselves, it will be very helpful.

    Natalie,
    Unlike squid, octopuses stay with their from the time they are laid until they are hatched. It is unlikely you will locate just the eggs but may come across a brooding female.
