Seattle Aquarium featured on Scientific American blog

The Aquarium’s “Octopus Blind Date” event was featured on the “Octopus Chronicles” section of the Scientific American  blog—on Valentine’s Day, appropriately enough! The article described our ever-popular, annual attempt to help sparks fly between a male and female octopus, as well as our various Octopus Week activities. Staff biologist Kathryn Kegel was also quoted throughout the article.

Missed the blind date? That's OK! Here is a short video of the event.
