Profile updated on 26 October 2016
Octopuses nei, (multispecies)
There is as yet no consensus as to the stock structure of these species, thus this profile may undergo restructuring in the future as new information comes to light.
Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
