Octopus Symposium & Workshop

Seattle Aquarium’s third octopus workshop

April 19, 2017

Join the Seattle Aquarium for our one-day workshop, highlighting current research. 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.

If you are interested in presenting, please upload your abstract here by February 1.
