Monterrey Bay Aquarium's SeafoodWatch has put the American Lobster (a.k.a. Maine Lobster) on the red AVOID list. Baby humpback whales have been getting ensared by lobster fishing trawlers off the Northeast Atlantic coast, so don't eat another lobster or it will be whale blood on your hands.

Consider the humble crab or even the freshwater crayfish for all your edible bug needs.

Thank u.

I've been to that aquarium and it rules. I'll probably keep eating lobster in the same frequency as i always have though (once every 32 years)

How do you catch whales with lobster trawlers? Don't you just drop a pot and wait for the idiots to crawl in?

Or just roll up and steal the Gordon Fisherman's catch?

In my excitement thinking about grilling and eating baby whales, I forgot the words “for dinner”. But yeah, the ambergris is all yours. :btroll:

Yeah but apparently the idiot whales try to get in there too and then they can't get out and drown

For anyone actually interested, whales have modified their migration routes for a few years now, possibly because of global warming, which sends them straight into the gulf of St-Lawrence at the height of lobster fishing season. Lobster cages are drat near everywhere at that time ( at certain depths anyway) and when a whale hits a buoy line, its instinct is to roll on itself to dissuade possible predators. Of course since the predator in question is actually a nylon rope, all it manages to do is entagle itself in painful fashion where they either get stuck like this for prolonged periods of time or drown.

I only buy Kirkland brand costco lobster. They’re genetically engineered at the Kirkland protein farms, so I don’t feel guilty about it.

Thread title just makes me picture the lobsters coming onto land to mate and people have to avoid them because they're rowdy and will claw at any intruders into their territory.

Leon is thriving.

The dude's going to get him a much bigger aquarium.

He also got a book deal, someone's writing a children's book about it.

Lobsters are now cute. You can't eat them any more.

(They're actually related to dust mites. The are giant, sea versions of dust mites. That's what you're eating.)
