Las langostas sufren y es terrible lo que tienen que sufrir para llegar al plato. Su destino sería vivir en el mar.

I have always been certain that crustaceans can feel pain and have always found it abhorrent that these poor creatures have had to suffer so much. I would like to see it taken a step further in order to stop these beautiful creatures, who live in social groups and families, from being eaten at all. We have plenty to to choose from and shouldn't need to see such pain inflicted just because we might fancy a luxury food at the seaside or to impress our friends at a dinner party. Those who fish for these intelligent and graceful creatures would always be able to diversify. I would urge everyone to sign this petition and make a change for good.

It’s disgusting that the UK is so far behind in the welfare stakes for some species.

It's shocking to me that this is even acceptable in this day and age, I really hope something is done about this. It's not right, it's cruel and disgusting how they treat these creatures.
