The Snapshot is the first UK industry benchmark to assesses the management and reporting practices of 30 UK companies, including household name brands and all major supermarkets.


It covers the welfare of crabs, lobsters and other crustaceans at every stage of the supply chain, from capture and handling to storage and slaughter, scoring companies on a number of key criteria and identifying areas of progress, as well as areas where improvements are needed.

Our Report: Why Decapod Crustaceans Deserve Legal Animal Welfare Protection

We have published a report which lays out the legal, ethical and public interest case for the protection of animals such as crabs and lobsters (decapod crustaceans).


We explain the science, show why the protection of decapods is commercially and legally feasible, and demonstrate the wealth of public and scientific support for our case.

LSE Report: Review of the Evidence of Sentience in Cephalopod Molluscs and Decapod Crustaceans

In 2018, following a Crustacean Compassion campaign, the UK government committed to conduct a review of decapod sentience (along with cephalopod molluscs).


This report was published in November 2021, and it’s findings concluded that there is strong evidence of sentience in decapod crustaceans. 


It recommended that the definition of animal be expanded to include decapod crustaceans and cephalopod molluscs in the Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill and their inclusion be considered in other animal welfare legislation.
