    Octopus Fishery Management Initiatives: A Promising Approach for Managing Coastal Fisheries 2014
    Also available in:

    Fished on all coasts of the Western Indian Ocean region, octopus - Octopus cyanea - is a source of income for numerous coastal communities. As it occurs in lagoons, octopus is generally fished on foot at low tide, although in numerous locations, the increasing scarcity of the resource has driven fishers to dive over the submarine wall. Formerly considered as a low-value product that only fisher households consume, octopus from South West Indian Ocean is now widely marketed. Nowadays, the region exports over 3,000MT of octopus per year, the largest part of which is provided by Tanzania and Madagascar. The octopuses are mainly intended for the European Union market, particularly Portugal, Italy, and France.
