    Abstract

    Octopus catch was earlier discarded, as it did not fetch any price, but in recent years, octopuses are also being exploited in commercial quantities and the major species that contribute to the fishery in Maharashtra are Cistopus indicus, O. membranaceus and O. dollfusi. Cephalopods form about 8.8% in trawl landings at New Ferry Wharf among which octopus contributed 4.9%.
