Fact of the Day: Locust Lobster

The modern English word for the lobster animals came from the Old English lopustre. The Old English name came from the Latin word locusta, which meant locusts and also crustaceans.

Lobsters cost a "mint" here in restaurants. I can't see the reason for that at all but this species of lobster (the locust) is found in the Mediterranean Sea and the Northern Atlantic.........so nowhere near "the land of Aussie".

With any luck I'll make it back to Nova Scotia this summer and have my annual feed of lobster and scallops. Fingers crossed!
