Welfare laws need to be brought into practice to stop the boiling alive of these sentient and intelligent creatures. No-one, unless trained, should have the authority to kill them for food purposes. Many chefs have been trained to stab between the eyes - however, because of the complexity of their anatomy, this does render them dead but merely paralysed. Lobsters, for example, do not have a central brain but rather a series of ganglia. All of these need to be destroyed to render the creature insensible of pain. I might add that I do not agree with the killing of them but recognise that people will continue to eat them and, if so, welfare laws need to be brought into place.
