Octopus feeding presentations will be postponed at this time. Our current octopus recently laid eggs while on exhibit. During this time, our animal husbandry staff will let her focus on taking care of her eggs (pictured at right).
We like to keep a backup octopus for when the tank's occupant needs a break or is ready to be released back into the ocean to breed. We gladly accept live octopus donations from the fishing community, recreational fishers, tide poolers and beach combers who have a state-issued shellfish license. Contact our aquarist if you have an octopus to donate.
