Yes, very nice. Considering that excessive water use in Israel and
Jordan is causing ground subsidence of the Dead Sea area, perhaps a test
plot should be to run a canal from the Med to the Dead (how much of
Palestine would get flooded by doing this?)...

Actually, few Main lobsters ever die of old age, those that do are
generally about 3' in length when senescence occurs. The lobster
continues to grow throughout life. So ideally, you want to dig a lot of
salt water lakes up in northern Canada to farm lobsters in, protecting
them from larger predators. So how big can a shrimp grow before it's no
longer referred to as a 'shrimp'? When it's as big as a real lobster.
"Pacific Lobster" really aren't. They have no pincers. They are just big
