Watchdog Group Warns Against Eating Lobster Because of Threat to Other Species

September 7, 2022

Is lobster being blacklisted? Not exactly. You’ll still be able to find the delicacy on menus and in markets, but a watchdog group says you might want to avoid it. Seafood Watch has given a red label to lobster, as well as East Coast snow crab, some species of flounder and Atlantic cod. A spokeswoman tells CBS News the gear used by fishermen is injuring the North Atlantic whale, which is already a critically endangered species. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
