This is a tough topic. I don't eat cephalopods, but I do eat meat. I try to only buy meat and eggs that are organic, grass-fed, cage-free, all that (and there are many classifications).

This community should consider what the appropriate guidelines might be for sustainability in the cephalopod supply chain.

#nonceph but related; you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend it!
