1. Many species and fishing methods for octopus.

Many species are much more sustainable than others. Here's the Monterey Bay Aquarium's "Seafood Watch" recommendations on octopus. (Giant Pacific Octopus is a 'Best Choice', while all others are either a 'Good Alternative' or 'Avoid', based mostly on source country and fishing methods.)

When buying seafood I always check my Seafood Watch pocket card or their app (the app is usually a little more current - recommendations change over time, and I don't always remember to garb the most recent hardcopy). A lot of the restaurants and fish markets here in Seattle only offer the Seafood Watch 'Best Choice' selections.

Lots of good information here on how to select the most sustainable choices:
