Spanish fishing boats are landing only a tenth of their normal summer catch of octopus, an unheard of drop.

Since the 1st July they have caught 38 tonnes of octopus, compared with a normal average of 378 tonnes over the same period.

Fishermen’s associations believe meteorological and environmental factors must be involved and that it can’t all be down to overfishing.
