Crayfish craziness, Shanghai (3)

We were walking down a quiet street late at night when we spotted some activity ahead.

The sidewalk in front of this restaurant was seething with thousands of writhing crayfish.

The women were performing some sort of sorting process that we couldn't figure out.

We probably should have taken a little movie but we were too busy standing there with our jaws dropped.

Photos I took last year in Paris are up on Jake's site.


Baby lobster (so they call it), one of the most sought after dish in Shanghai during this couple of years. But personally I'd say there's too much biological engineering going on this shellfish. The redish color looks so unnatural...

They look fine to me. I've seen my share of crawfish in my 48 years in southeastern Louisiana. I suspect they're separating the live ones from the dead ones.
