Association of deep-sea incirrate octopods with manganese crusts and nodule fields in the Pacific Ocean

Abstract

Incirrate octopods (those without fins) are among the larger megafauna inhabiting the benthic environments of all oceans, commonly in water depths down to about 3,000 m. They are known to protect and brood their eggs until the juveniles hatch, but to date there is little published information on octopod deep-sea life cycles and distribution. For this study… (More)
