Octopuses are sentient !! – they are emotional animals that feel pain. A recent report commissioned by the department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs in the United Kingdom reviewed the scientific evidence for pain experience in cephalopod mollusks (octopuses, squid and cuttlefish).
Sentient animals used for food are protected under welfare laws and killed in ways that should minimize their pain. Current methods of slaughtering octopuses include clubbing, slicing open the brain, or suffocating them.
The report's authors conclude that none of these methods of slaughter are humane and recommends against octopus farming
A recently proposed aquaculture octopus farm in the Canary Islands would raise 3,000 metric tons of octopus a year, which means almost 275,000 individual octopuses will be killed annually. Help raise awareness and stop this from happening!
