Improving (FIP A-C)Chile Patagonian red octopus - hookahHigh RiskNot all recommendations made by the scientific entity are assumed by management. The catch limits established in 2011 were no longer set. No specific goals are defined for the fishery.
There are no reliable or current estimates on illegal fishing and 7.5% of catches were under the minimum weight in 2009; since then landings’ weights and efficiency have reduced notoriously.
Biomass or fishing mortality reference points are not determined and only landings are monitored. The stock status is unknown and according to the monitoring program, the fishery is in a growth overfishing situation since large amounts of immature individuals are captured.
Manufacturing plants are not included in the monitoring program and many non-monitored octopuses are there processed from small ports.
Females protecting postures are more vulnerable to fishing and when removed eggs are likely to be lost, endangering future stability.
Non-selective gear harms individuals under the legal weight and other species, as these are inside small caves and divers can’t see them. Alternative gears don’t show good performances in comparison.
The interaction of the fishery with the habitat or environment is unknown. Non-target species are not identified.
Develop a Management Plan, in accordance with MSC Principles 1 and 2, by January 2021.FIP stared in Oct 2018 with public record becoming available in March 2019. Not Yet RatedUnknown? (<0,01)

Improving (FIP A-C)Mexico Bahia de Los Angeles octopus - trap/diver-caught/hand gatheredNot yet scored?By the project's target end date, the FIP hopes to achieve the following:

To improve the performance of the octpus fishery moving towards sustainability by December 2022
To conduct participatory management of the octopus fishery by December 2022
To perform the octopus fishery in an orderly manner by December 2022
To maintain a basic information system for the management of the octopus fishery by June 2019
To apply management strategies and comply with local regulations and agreements for the management of the octopus fishery by December 2022
To have a cold chain and production processing through quality controls by December 2022
To provide added value and open new marketing channels by December 2022
To maintain the economic benefits of fishermen by December 2022

Improving (FIP A-C)Shantou-Taiwan shortarm octopus - jigNot yet scoredNo species-specific stock assessment is conducted.
There is little information available on stock assessment and environmental impacts but it is unclear if this is due it not existing or to it not being made public.
IUU fishing is known to occur despite no available and official data.
By March 2020, this FIP hopes to achieve the following objectives:

To better understand the octopus fishing dynamics and its impacts on the ecosystem while experimenting a traceability system jointly with all stakeholders including local government, research institute, industry, fisher and NGO.
To strengthen the knowledge of the reproduction and stock status of the shortarm octopus by investigating the spawning ground and studying potential measures to protect the spawning ground.
FIP was launched in Feb 2018 by Beaver Str. Fisheries and Shantou Haimao Foods Co. Ltd. and recorded publicly in March 2019.Not Yet RatedUnknown? (<0,2), 800 metric tonnes

Improving (FIP A-C)Southwest Madagascar octopus - diving & gleaningNot yet scored?In creating a robust and sustainable management framework, the FIP will ensure that:
Good management stewardship and husbandry of the octopus resource is the status quo
The octopus resource remains a stable and productive driver of food and income for generations to come.
Positively improved catch handling and fishery interactions with the supply chain are developed
The fishery products are linked to more rewarding markets, ensuring that communities are given a fairer price for their catch
The value of the product is maximized bringing more money into the community for much-needed amenities and more money into fishing families to drive a higher standard of life.
By January 2022 we the fishery has reached a score of 80 or above for each of the performance indicators measured in the pre-assessment

The artisanal fleet frequently catches undersized individuals.
Traditional biological points are not available and a full stock assessment hasn't been conducted.
Specific studies about the interaction of the fishery with the ecosystem and habitat are not known to be conducted.
The bait species (blue crab) is fully exploited.

Fishery targets of SRPhilippines Octopuses neiData DeficientStock assessments are not conducted for octopus in the Philippines, and consequently little is know about octopus stock status.
While some general conservation measures are in place for all commercial fisheries in the Philippines, there are no management measures specific to the octopus fishery.
Methods used in the harpoon fishery can have damaging effects on corals.

13
Fishery targets of SRIndonesia Octopuses neiData DeficientNo management strategy is in place; the small-scale fisheries (SSFs) sector is practically unregulated in Indonesia.
Exploitation rates and the current status of the stock are unknown. Catch data is not disaggregated by species and does not include small-scale fisheries catch.
The fishery mostly takes place in shallow reefs, some impact (e.g., physical damage of the coral reefs) on these habitats is likely.
