Australia, Octopus, western australia, Abrolhos Octopus
The remote Abrolhos Islands and associated reefs lie in the Indian Ocean around 80 kilometres off the coast of Geraldton, Western Australia. It is one of the world's most important seabird breeding sites, and is the centre of Western Australia's largest single-species fishery, the western rock lobster fishery. A small seasonal population of fishermen live on the island, and a limited number of tourists are permitted for day trips, but most of the land area is off limits as conservation habitat. The islands were declared a national park by the Western Australian government in July 2019. [Source: Wikipedia]
