Pelagic Juvenile Octos from Midwater Trawl


Larval Mass
Apr 21, 2009
The included photos are of octos collected from nighttime 30m depth midwater trawls off Point Reyes and Monterrey Bay on the most recent NMFS Rockfish cruise (and subsequently released, no worries).

If anyone can help ID these little cuties, that'd be awesome. They find TONS of these guys, but no one on the cruise was into octos.
