Octopus is another source of marine collagen which was researched since 1980s.
There are numerous types of collagen and the five most common types are:
Type I: Skin, tendon, ligament, vascular ligature, organs, bone 
Type II: Cartilage
Type III: Reticulate (main constituent of reticular fibers)
Type IV: Forms the epithelium-secreted layer of the
basement membrane and the basal lamina
