Often, once sold lobsters and crabs are boiled alive or hacked apart with knives whilst fully conscious. It is a horrific way to die and could be excruciatingly painful. We wouldn’t standby if other animals were sold live and killed this way, so why is it deemed acceptable to subject crustaceans to this horror?
Shockingly, despite having the ability to suffer, there are currently no laws to govern how sea life is killed in the UK. That’s how little Government and retailers care.
