Description

Many Alaska fishermen who are catching octopus incidentally could increase their catch and earn extra money by selling octopus as halibut bait. The demand for octopus as bait currently is met mostly by Japanese suppliers. This report provides information on fishing techniques for the giant Pacific octopus, and suggests that a supplemental octopus fishery could become valuable with some effort invested in developing market and harvesting techniques.
