Can anybody help with a specific species for this one? Scooped off the surface in 1000m of water off the north-west coast of Western Australia, close to 17° 30’ South, 118° East. There were scores there at the time. Subsequently released after a few pics. I'm figuring tremoctopus but I know there are a few versions.
