Hubb Octopus

  • From:
    Gulf of California
    Wild, traps, diver-caught, hand-caught

Like other cephalopods, octopuses are not considered vulnerable to overfishing  since they grow fast and reproduce at a young age.

Fishing methods- traps, diving, hand capture—lead to little bycatch, and while traps can do moderate damage to the habitat, the other methods are relatively harmless.

Although overfishing does not seem likely, some concern remains because the octopus population in the Gulf of California is unknown, and management of the fishery is minimal.
