Climate Change Might Be Helping Octopuses

A new study found the octopus population is on the up and up, and climate change could be helping those numbers.
In addition to octopuses, the study in Current Biology looked at other types of cephalopods — a category of marine life that includes cuttlefish and squid.
The group is really good at adapting. Researchers say even with the effects of climate change on sea temperatures and the documented decline of some fish populations, cephalopod numbers have increased overall in recent decades.
