About This Project

Surprisingly, it has yet to be shown if octopuses can use odors to find food, it is often assumed that they can. We are investigating odor tracking in Octopus rubescens by observing them searching for food in a flume in the dark under consistent bulk flow conditions. This basic behavioral ecology research aims to fill a significant assumption gap in the current understanding of octopus chemosensory ecology. We need help paying for a scanning sheet laser to visualize flow.
