These local Octopus are pot caught in Lobster pots and bespoke octopus pots. They’re fantastic eating and are really quite versatile considering their very firm texture.

Octopus are a mollusc rather than a fish and their tentacles are covered in circular suckers which they grab their prey with.

Because they’re so strong, the meat needs to be tenderised before being eaten. This is usually is done by simmering the octopus for 40-60 minutes in water or stock, and then finishing it off in the frying pan or on the barbecue, although some chefs swear by freezing it first.

Octopus is commonly eaten in stews but is delicious thinly sliced into a summer salad or even eaten raw as sashimi.
