Octopus release goes swimmingly!

Octopus release goes swimmingly!

After a temporary stay at Macduff Marine Aquarium, this octopus was carefully transported back to the sea so that she would have time to find a mate and complete her lifecycle.

In the video below you can find out how we came to have this fascinating animal at the aquarium. Watch her glide gently out of her high tech tupperware transport, before jetting off and immediately adapting to her natural habitat, going straight into camouflage mode amongst the kelp.
