Sundaram, Sujit and Sarang, J D (2011) Occurrence of Octopus vulgaris Cuvier, 1797 at Mumbai, Maharashtra. Marine Fisheries Information Service (210). pp. 16-17.
Octopuses popularly called as ‘devilfish’ are caught mainly as bycatch in the bottom trawl. Due to the growing demand for octopus in the international market, octopus fishery is catching up in Maharashtra. The main fish landing centres for octopus in Mumbai are New Ferry Wharf and Sassoon Dock. Octopuses contribute 3.6% towards the total cephalopod catch in Mumbai. Ommen (1971, 1977) identified many new species of octopus along the west coast of India.
