Shellfish are so popular these days and they gained a lot of popularity for a reason! When most people think of shellfish, they think of crabs and lobster but did you know that squids and octopuses count as shellfish as well?

Philippe Cousteau, Jr. discussed his concern for shellfish and their living conditions when he said, "Ocean acidification is often referred to as osteoporosis of the oceans because as acidity rises, shell building creatures such as lobster, oyster, crab, shrimp, and coral are unable to extract the calcium carbonate from the water that they need to build their shells and are thus unable to survive." Hopefully, mankind can begin to start treating the oceans better in order to preserve sea life... including shellfish! It would be a very sad day to discover that shellfish were going extinct!
