Switzerland has ruled against boiling live lobsters, meanwhile, East Coasters are saying the law doesn’t make any sense. https://t.co/61aOJSRe5M

A new law in Switzerland has the New Brunswick fishing industry scratching their heads…The Swiss Federal Council has passed a new law ruling that lobsters can no longer be boiled alive; instead, they have to be knocked out or killed humanely before they go in the pot. Alma Lobster Shop owner Rodney MacDonald told Global News that the lobsters are dead within seconds of being in the pot anyway so his family found it a little puzzling. The Alma Lobster Shop is a third-generation family-run business that distributes about one million pounds of lobster a year to countries as far away as China.
