Hi all,

I just got a recipe for slow poached octopus and want to try my hand at it. It calls for a live octopus. anyone know where I can find one, or perhaps how much they cost?

    Although I would recommend against getting a live octopus, although odd, you may want to get a number and contact the Hunt's Point fish market in the Bx and ask them if they know. They supply sooo many places with their seafood, if anyone has they should, and if they dont they may know where you can get.
