WQHR cites Lobster Institute experts in questioning whether lobsters feel pain

WQHR (Q96.1 in Presque Isle) cited University of Maine experts Robert Steneck and Bob Bayer in a story about whether lobsters experience pain while being boiled. According to Steneck, a professor of marine sciences, and Bayer, the retired director of the Lobster Institute, the lobster’s nervous system is simple, and not likely to register pain.
