Hello All

I need some juvenile octopuses for a scientific investigation in which we need to stain them for internal organs.

I had hoped that MBL could help out, but they are shut because of COVID and have been telling me that they would prefer if I found a more local supplier. I am based in the UK, so anywhere in Europe is what I am hoping to find a supplier within.

Any suggestions would really help me out.

Hey, you could try Eduardo Almansa - https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Eduardo_Almansa

His group works on the aquaculture of octopus, including paralarvae. Nobody in the UK would have any, including the MBA. There is also a group in Faro, Portugal, and Naples, Italy who may have access but I am less sure about these guys.
