Octopi is a modern and lightweight cloud-based TOS developed exclusively for container and mixed cargo terminals with throughputs around 100,000 TEUs (Twenty foot Equivalent Unit) per year.
Following this acquisition, Octopi will continue to operate out of its Miami headquarters under the direction of Luc Castera, CEO, Octopi, who will also be showcasing the Octopi solution and participating at the upcoming Navis World 2019 in San Francisco on 25 March 2019 to 28 March 2019.
Since the project began and word of the success spread, hospitals from around the world have been asking how to get crochet octopi of their own for their premature babies.
A list of Facebook groups who focus on making the crochet octopi in their own local areas is here.
Rules include using 100% cotton, stuffing the octopi firmly with filling that can withstand 60 degree C (140 degree Fahrenheit) water during washing, and the head and tentacles must fit certain measurements in order to be safe.
Emperical data is lacking on pot soak times, bottom types, and water temperatures (seasons) favorable for catching octopi in continental shelf waters off North Carolina.
With the exception of open tops, conch pots were similar in size and construction to the typical construction of Black Sea Bass, Centropristis striata, traps that capture octopi as bycatch in the U.S.
It was thought that lids would help reduce escapement of octopi during haulback relative to pots without lids.
The two pots at the end of each string were conch pots used as anchors in order to keep the lighter octopus pots from lifting off of or rolling on the bottom and thus elicit greater rates of occupancy by octopi. The middle ten pots of each string were octopus pots that alternately had lids and no lids.
The relationships DML-weight show that the weight growth of octopi from the east coast of Tunisia is isometric for both sexes (parameter b does not differ significantly from the theoretical value 3).
Thus, the values of [L.sub.[infinity]] determined in the populations of octopi in the Occidental Mediterranean Sea (Guerra 1979), in the Gabes Gulf (Zghidi-Barraj 2002), and along the coast of Mauritania (Hatanaka 1979), which are, respectively, 30 cm, 29.6 cm, and 27.68 cm, are not different from [L.sub.[infinity]] of octopi along the eastern coast of Tunisia ([L.sub.[infinity]] = 28.3 cm).
Guerra (1979) estimated the rate of linear growth to 13.4 mm/mo; so, the Atlantic octopus shows a greater length and weight growth in relation to octopi from the Occidental Mediterranean Sea and from those off the east coast of Tunisia.
