This is a disturbing and worrying article. The implications are massive and this bad idea needs to be stopped. It can be stopped, if enough people start thinking about the sentience of creatures:
This is sickening. There is no way to farm octopi that will not result in cruelty. Octopi are clearly intelligent creatures so there is no way this is ethical.
The world took one step forward when the UK recognized octopi as sentient beings. We will take many steps back if we start to farm them for food. 
Sadly too many people look at octopi and most other creatures and they don't see a living being, they see food.

We have to reach people and convince them that animals are living, feeling, thinking beings.
