Campaigning for the humane treatment of crabs, lobsters and other decapod crustaceans in the UK
Despite overwhelming evidence that animals like crabs, lobsters, prawns & crayfish (decapod crustaceans) are capable of experiencing pain, every year millions of these animals are boiled alive, cut up alive, mailed live in the post... the list goes on. Find out who we are and why we’re working to get these sentient animals protected.

Langoustines are routinely "tailed" at sea, a practice that involves ripping their tails off, whilst alive and fully conscious. These tails are then sold as scampi.
Our #CloseTheLoophole campaign calls on the government to protect all decapod crustaceans once and for all, but including them in the existing Animal Welfare Act and issuing guidance for fishing vessels. But we need your help.
Please show these vulnerable animals some love by signing our petition now.
