A beautiful dark blue crustacean that commands a very high price. The claw and tail meat of lobster is considered a delicacy. Female lobsters with eggs (berried hens) are protected under the law and fisherman have to put them back in the water, so you can enjoy lobsters all year round. The method through which lobsters are caught is sustainable, as potting is a selective, low impact fishery.
There is much debate as to the most humane method of cooking live lobsters. It is recommended that they are first wrapped in a wet cloth and placed in the fridge to render the lobster unconscious in a sleep state (torpor). Before boiling, drive a sharp pointed knife through the cross on the head. This method both prevents suffering and ensures the meat stays tender.
