The Global Explorer ROV operates on the edge of its abilities as the ROV pilot skillfully maneuvers the ROV in an attempt to capture the finned octopus, Cirroteuthis muelleri.  After several close calls using the D-samplers, the operators switch to using the ROV’s suction device and successfully capture the octopus!
