Last weekend in the province of Zeeland, synonymous with sea food, a man got caught by inspectors with 126 live lobsters. The man’s diving gear was still in his car. The inspectors assumed he was planning to sell the lobsters to restaurants. Many of the lobsters were still too small to be caught. Luckily, the poor little lobsters were released into the sea.
Last time I checked, lobster cost 22 euro a kilo on the Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam. This lobster is from Canada, where a medium-sized lobster at the supermarket can cost, oh, 7 or 8 euro.
