"Live crustaceans, including the lobster, may no longer be transported on ice or in ice water. Aquatic species must always be kept in their natural environment,"
More importantly, they can't ship them on ice... That means trucks with giant fish tanks on them.
Do they eat much lobster in Switzerland?
one of the most landlocked countries in europe though, guess the lobsters appreciate they don't have to do the commute.
I had a discussion with someone once who actually dissected and studied lobsters for a living, after I had read "Consider the Lobster" by David Foster Wallace (great story btw, and great book if you haven't read it). He said that Lobsters do not have the ability to feel pain in a way we would understand. The screeching that is heard is not them crying, but water evaporating.
It sounds plausible, and he seemed to know what he was talking about, but I still find it hard to believe any animal would be unable to feel pain. How could they survive as a species without the ability to feel pain, which is what makes you instantly avoid dangerous situations?
Completely misread this as lobbyists. Got confused as to why it was legal.
