Crustacean Compassion is a new UK website is launched to campaign for the humane treatment of decapod crustaceans and their legal protection in the UK. They note that other countries including New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland include decapod crustaceans in their animal welfare legislation in the food preparation and restaurant trade.
“We know that crabs aren’t the cuddliest of campaign mascots. But that’s not what we’re about. We are an evidence-based campaign group who believe it’s unfair, unscientific, and legally inconsistent that current animal welfare legislation only covers animals who wear their bones on the inside.
