    Cockroaches of de sea.

      Yup!

      The man’s got a point. We wouldn’t think of eating roaches or spiders, but a similar creature with a couple extra limbs… is considered a delicacy.

      May be a little creepy if you think of it that way.

    Just leave them be. Not so long ago there were over three billion passenger pigeons, but we ate them out of existence… must we deplete the oceans too?

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      That is why there are license requirements, size limits, bag limits & season limits.

      • Garrus says:

        We have speed limits too and look how well that’s going!

        • Triangle Drifter says:

          Guess the Government will have to ban the dealers from selling bikes & cars. Would that stop it?

          • Garrus says:

            Well, we kind of need those to get around. We can get by just fine, however, without killing every species we fancy. I don’t have a problem if culling the lionfish as they are also destroying our ecosystem. Just my opinion mate. I’m keenly aware that most Bermudians aren’t going to be going vegan anytime soon. People won’t care about preserving what we’ve got until it’s too late. I find it quite sad. But carry on, I know you will.

        Which not all people abide by. The Marine Police need to watch carefully, and I hope I can get a lobster dinner when I go out to get one.
