UK lobster boiling ban

For years, animal welfare activists have demanded to ban boiling lobsters and other sea creatures.

Dubbed as “unnecessary torture”, lobsters that are boiled are known to experience immense suffering and writhe wildly while trying to escape the scalding water.

Research by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) found strong evidence that lobsters, shrimp, squid and octopuses all experience pain.

Animal Welfare Minister, Lord Zac Goldsmith, has said: “The Animal Welfare Sentience Bill provides a crucial assurance that animal well-being is rightly considered when developing new laws.

“The science is now clear that decapods and cephalopods can feel pain and therefore it is only right they are covered by this vital piece of legislation.”

Additionally, the report recommends declawing of crab claws and wholesale of live decapods and crustaceans to the untrained also be banned.

Instead, the reports recommended greater investment into more ‘humane’ killing practices of these beings, such as quick electrocution.
