Abstract we examined variation in dietary specialization of enteroctopus dofleini (wülker, 1910), the giant pacific octopus, from puget sound to the aleutian islands, as represented in midden remains dietary specialization was measured from midden contents as: species richness (r) and cardona's niche breadth (regional indices), and proportional similarity of a midden to the regional sample. Employment of high-precision thin-layer methods has enabled detailed functional characterization of oxygen and carbon monoxide binding for (1) the fully assembled form with 70 binding sites and (2) the isolated chains with 7 binding sites of octopus dofleini hemocyanin. Members of the class cephalopoda are gonochoric male and female adults usually die shortly after spawning and brooding, respectively mating behavior: males perform various displays to attract potential females for copulation. Geographic range giant pacific octopuses, enteroctopus dofleini, are found throughout the pacific oceanthey have been documented as far north as the alaskan aleutian islands and as far south as the baja california region of mexico.
Octopus captured in pots were identified, sexed, measured, and weighed though there are several species of octopus in alaska, e dofleini is easily identifiable by eye papillae and size (jorgensen, 2009)captured octopus were sexed by distinguishing the hectocotylus on the third right arm of the males. Abstract octopus growth and movement occurs during all life stages and have implications for survival, food web dynamics and reproduction from 2009 to 2011, 1714 north pacific giant octopus (enteroctopus dofleini) were tagged and recaptured in the eastern bering sea with visible implant elastomers to better understand the ecology of this data-poor species. True to its name, the north pacific giant octopus is the largest of all octopus species , and, along with other cephalopods (a group of molluscs that contain the octopuses, squid and cuttlefish), it is considered one of the most intelligent of all invertebratesthe body, or ‘mantle’, is generally reddish-brown, and it is usually darker in the male than in the female.

Choice of arm usage in a giant pacific octopus, enteroctopus dofleini (wülker, 1910), is based on relative proximity to object of interaction cephalopod articles | by abstract the choice of arm usage in an individual adult male enteroctopus dofleini was observed, recorded and analyzed it was hypothesized that the octopus would use the arm that was closest to an object of interaction, and.
