Lobsters and Crabs Feel Pain

Research to be published in two journals focusing on animal behavior suggests that virtually all animals, including lobsters, crabs, fish, shellfish, and insects, can suffer.

Chris Sherwin, a senior research fellow in the Clinical Veterinary Science division at the University of Bristol, commenting on the study told Discovery News, “The question of whether invertebrates experience pain is fundamental to our legislation that protects animals and our behavior, attitude and use of these highly complex organisms.”
