The Guardian quotes Steneck in article on boiling lobsters alive

Robert Steneck, a professor of marine sciences at the University of Maine, spoke with The Guardian for the article, “Is it wrong to boil lobsters alive?” “I’m not convinced they feel pain,” Steneck said. “There is no compelling case I’ve seen that suggests they feel pain. You don’t really see this level of concern for people who eat oysters or clams — they’re certainly every bit as alive.” Steneck has been studying lobsters since 1983 in the waters around Maine, according to the article.
