2014 Giant Pacific octopus workshop

Seattle Aquarium’s second biennial Giant Pacific octopus workshop

March 29, 2014, 7:30am–3:30pm

Join the Seattle Aquarium for our one-day giant Pacific octopus workshop, highlighting current research on Enteroctopus dofleini, the world’s largest species of octopus. The Seattle Aquarium has a long history of exhibiting octopuses—and giant Pacific octopuses are even found in the waters directly below our pier. The workshop will feature several papers and round-table discussions about octopus husbandry, biology, physiology, ecology and behavior.

Online registration is now closed. Tickets will be available at the door for $40 per person.
