  • About

The octopus I use are caught in the Coffin Bay area of South Australia, immediately ikijime spiked and then packed directly on ice. They are of sashimi-grade quality, which is rare for octopus of this size. Normally these small baby octopus are bycatch of trawled prawns and are not handled with such care. In this case they are deliberately caught using specialised octopus trap that has been developed by Mark Eather.
