Currently, there are no plans to return and study the lurking octopus population, though there are a few grant proposals in the works. Submarines are expensive, and take massive amounts of logistical work to manage once approved. For this study Hartwell and Voight made extensive use of the hours of footage amassed during the earlier mission led by their co-author Geoff Wheat. They binge-watched hours of octopus footage taken from the submarine, waiting for glimpses of tentacles of the unidentified species of Muusoctopus that dominated the rocks. Until they get a chance to go back, we only have those glimpses of this strange, sad nursery.
