Octopus (Octopus spp.) is an important part of the fisheries sector and has commercial value. For this reason, supervision and maintenance is necessary to maintain and preserve its existence. This study aims to examine the growth patterns of different sources in Lombok, North Lombok. Data collection is conducted from April to November 2018 with survey methods and direct observations in the field. Octopus samples were obtained from the catch of fishermen in the area of North Lombok. The total number of octopus samples is 96. Data analysis by looking at the length of the octopus to find out its growth pattern. The results showed that the weight-length relationship of octopus obtained by the formula y = 2.1279x-2.1197 with the coefficient of determination is R2 = 0.795. This means that 79% of weight gain occurs due to the old growth of the octopus body, while 21% of weight gain is influenced by other factors such as environmental and age factors. This also shows the total amount is not too significant to the total weight of the octopus. For octopus growth patterns obtained b value of 2.1279, which means octopus is a negative allometric (b <3) where long growth is faster than others. This can be caused by conditions that are not possible. Whereas to assess factors between 0.08-0.78 which means that the body of the octopus is less flat
