Made Climate Change Octopuses Crawling On Beaches

Up to 25 of the cephalopods end up on dry land, possibly confused or injured by the recent storms in Wales, the UK.

Dozens of octopuses have been spotted emerging from the ocean and crawling along the Welsh coast in a nightly pilgrimage with perplexed people at a seaside town. Up to 25 curled octopuses, which grow to a length of 50cm, were seen three nights in a row at New Quay beach in Ceredigion in west Wales. Some of the wayward cephalopods were later found dead, washed up on the beach.

Brett Jones, who runs SeaMôr dolphin-watching boat trips, said he first witnessed the phenomenon returning from a sunset trip. In his experience, Jones said that curled octopuses “usually hide in the rocks some two or three meters below the surface. He said he had tried to return the crawling creatures to the sea where possible. “We collected the ones that were totally out of the water and plopped them back in at the end of the pier, hopefully saving them from getting stranded,” he said. However, it wasn’t enough to save them all. He encouraged anyone who saw land-hugging octopus return them to the water but warned: “Wear gloves; they bite like mad.”

Could Turkey Poop Stop It? The curator at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, James Wright, said that while he was aware of two other incidents of curled octopuses roaming in north Devon and Wales in the past week, the number witnessed in Ceredigion was “quite odd and suggested there is something wrong with them.” “As the areas where they are exhibiting this odd behavior coincides with the two areas hit by the two recent low-pressure depressions and associated storms of Ophelia and Brian, it could be supposed that these have affected them,” Wright said. “It could simply be injuries sustained by the rough weather itself, or there could be a sensitivity to a change in atmospheric pressure.” The recent storms could be related to climate change.
