SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Enteroctopus dofleini

SPECIES NAME(s)

North Pacific giant octopus

The North Pacific giant octopus, the largest octopus species in the world, can be found through the NE Pacific coast, from California to Alaska, and NW Pacific, south to Japan. Information on the population structure is lacking (Barry et al. 2013) and no assessment is known to be conducted thus a management unit within Japanese waters is here considered.

Fisheries

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.
