Langoustes _Lobsters and 6 petitions to sign.

Publié le par Isabella-Vegan-♥

La saison des fêtes de fin d'année  est la saison de toutes les souffrances animales!


Avant d'ébouillanter  ou de griller vivante votre langouste pour Noel ou le Jour de l'An

merci de lire ces informations.


La langouste :

Les langoustes fréquentent en général les fonds rocheux où elles peuvent trouver des abris. Elles se meuvent en marchant à l'aide de leurs pattes mais peuvent aussi nager en se propulsant en arrière par de violentes contractions de l'abdomen, surtout en cas de fuite.


Lobster :

Spiny lobsters are found in almost all warm seas, including the Caribbean and the Mediterranean Sea, but are particularly common in Australasia, where they are referred to commonly as crayfish or sea crayfish (Jasus novaehollandiae and Jasus edwardsii), and in South Africa (Jasus lalandii). A new species, Palinurus barbarae was described in 2006.

Spiny lobsters tend to live in crevices of rocks and coral reefs, only occasionally venturing out at night to seek snails, clams, crabs, sea urchins or carrion to eat. Sometimes, they migrate in very large groups in long files of lobsters across the sea floor. These lines may be more than 50 lobsters long. Spiny lobsters navigate by using the smell and taste of natural substances in the water that change in different parts of the ocean. It was recently discovered that spiny lobsters can also navigate by detecting the Earth's magnetic field.They keep together by contact, using their long antennae.

Potential predators may be deterred from eating spiny lobsters by a loud screech made by the antennae of the spiny lobsters rubbing against a smooth part of the exoskeleton.[ Spiny lobsters usually exhibit social habit by being together. However recent studies indicate that healthy lobsters move away from infected ones leaving the diseased lobsters to fend for themselves.


Many spiny lobsters produce rasping sounds to repel predators. This is done by rubbing the "plectrum" at the base of the spiny lobster's antennae against a "file". The noise is produced by frictional vibrations - sticking and slipping, similar to rubber materials sliding against hard surfaces. While a number of insects use frictional vibration mechanisms to generate sound, this particular acoustic mechanism is unique in the animal kingdom. Significantly, the system does not rely on the hardness of the exoskeleton, as many other arthropod sounds do, meaning that the spiny lobsters can continue to produce the deterrent noises even in the period following a moult when they are most vulnerable. The stridulating organ is present in all but three genera in the family (Jasus, Projasus and the furry lobster Palinurellus), and its form can distinguish different species.

Elles ressentent  la douleur comme tous les poissons.!

They feel PAIN!

Anyone who made it through Biology 101 knows that fish have nerves and brains that sense pain, just as all animals do. Dr. Donald Broom, a scientific advisor to the British government, explains, "The scientific literature is quite clear. Anatomically, physiologically and biologically, the pain system in fish is virtually the same as in birds and animals."

Neurobiologists have long recognized that fish have nervous systems that comprehend and respond to pain. Scientists tell us that fish brains and nervous systems closely resemble our own. For example, fish (like "higher vertebrates") have neurotransmitters such as endorphins that relieve suffering; the only reason for their nervous systems to produce these painkillers is to relieve pain. Researchers have created a detailed map of pain receptors in fish's mouths and all over their bodies. A team at the University of Guelph in Canada recently surveyed the scientific literature on fish pain and intelligence. They concluded that fish feel pain and that "the welfare of fish requires consideration."

A two-year study by scientists at Edinburgh University and the Roslin Institute in the U.K. proved what many marine biologists have been saying for years: Fish feel pain, just as all animals do. Anglers may not like to think about it, but fish suffer when they are impaled in the mouth and pulled into an environment in which they cannot breathe. Said Dr. Lynne Sneddon, who headed the study,"Really, it's kind of a moral question. Is your angling more important than the pain to the fish?"

A study by scientists at Queen's University Belfast proved that fish learn to avoid pain, just like other animals. Rebecca Dunlop, one of the researchers, said, "This paper shows that pain avoidance in fish doesn't seem to be a reflex response, rather one that is learned, remembered and is changed according to different circumstances. Therefore, if fish can perceive pain, then angling cannot continue to be considered a noncruel sport."

Fish can also suffer from fear and anticipation of physical pain. Researchers from universities across America have published research showing that some fish use sound to communicate distress when nets are dipped into their tanks or they are otherwise threatened. In a separate study, researcher William Tavolga found that fish grunted when they received an electric shock. In addition, the fish began to grunt as soon as they saw the electrode in anticipation of the torment that Tavolga was inflicting on them.

According to Dr. Michael Fox, D.V.M., Ph.D., "Even though fish don't scream [audibly to humans] when they are in pain and anguish, their behavior should be evidence enough of their suffering when they are hooked or netted. They struggle, endeavoring to escape and, by so doing, demonstrate they have a will to survive."

Une pétition :/ A petition :


Lobsters can feel pain. Their nervous system reacts to morphine the same way a humans' nervous system does. Live lobsters are being sold at restaurants, companies, grocery stores, and markets. The conditions of the live lobsters are unusually cruel and depressing. The lobsters are cooped up in a tank with their claws banded, and their antennae are trimmed. Since lobsters usually live in murky, dark places their antennae are the lobsters' way of guiding themselves and sensing dangers around them. We should not let companies and corporations sell live lobsters because it is cruel, irrational, and no human would ever wish for another human to be caged like the lobsters are while they are waiting to be killed.

  *** THANKS to FENIA ♥






Lobsters from the US and Canada are being exported to Italy. After they are caught, the animals are sorted out on the assembly line according to their size, and with individualy being packed in metal boxes with their tied claws. For days and weeks lobsters are left piled on each other in cooling tanks until they are transported to Metro, where they are often left for weeks immobile and without food in aquariums. Their journey of suffering often ends by them being thrown in boiling water, from which they unsuccessfuly try to escape.

By signing this petition I appeal to Metro to immediately stop selling live lobsters!

Ask Virginia Restaurant to Ditch Lobster 'Game'

The Lobster Zone is a cruel "game" that's found in some bars and restaurants. The arcade-style contraption allows patrons to pluck a lobster out of a machine using a joystick-controlled crane with an attached claw. Once caught, the lobster is dropped down a chute, boiled or cut up while still alive, and then eaten. But like all animals, lobsters can feel pain, and they suffer when they are injured, cut, or boiled alive.

PETA has recently received several calls from patrons of Knuckleheads Roadhouse who were horrified upon seeing a Lobster Zone machine in the restaurant. Our callers reported seeing lobsters languishing in a tank and trying to flee as they were repeatedly chased by the metal claw.
