Did the Octopus get a reward?

Octopus caught in South Korean nets had some valuable pottery shards from the medievel period attached to their tentacles. As a result of tracing the shards, archaelogists discovered a treasure trove of the ancient pottery in a sunken 12th-century vessel.

Of course, it's unclear whether anyone thanked the octopus, or at least let them out of the nets.
