Octopuses are among the world's most intelligent invertebrates. They're also in high demand as a food product, with increasing efforts to commercially farm octopuses for human consumption. This panel program will discuss the current state of the octopus farming industry, associated ethical and environmental issues, welfare concerns with keeping octopuses in captivity, and the legal framework relevant to octopuses.
