Seafood Bands Help Lobsters

Friday, November 09, 2012

Rubber bands help with a lot of interesting craft projects, but did you know they are also utilized by the seafood industry? It’s true.  lobster

Visit your local seafood establishment and you’ll see most of the lobsters have rubber bands on their claws. According to online sources, that keeps them from eating each other. They say lobsters are not by nature cannibalistic.

When trying to band a lobster, hold the lobster by the base of the claws. Always remove the bands before cooking.

Tell us about some of the interesting ways rubber bands make a difference in your world. We’d like to thank Kathy, the winner of our latest blog post. She receives a prize pack and t-shirt.
