Lobster used to be so cheap and plentiful that fishermen would throw them away as useless, and saloons on the coasts would have lobster in their free lunches.

Fellow Marylander?

Nah, midwest.  If I lived on a coast, I'd probably try to find it fresh rather than buying frozen at a warehouse store.  :)

I just asked because people seem to have no idea what Old Bay is if they aren't from somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic.
I thought he was from Maryland too. (Hi, from Maryland. **waving**) I feel inexplainably territorial about Old Bay. Haha
You can even buy it in little, rural towns in SE Nebraska. Wilber's population is about 1,700 and our grocery, the Food Mesto, has it on the shelf.
That's great! Im glad everyone has the chance to enjoy it. Its great on Tuna Salad and crab soup! Reminds me of when I was little, we would have to have our ADOBO shipped to us from Puerto Rico. Now you can get it at every grocery store. 

But if you want REAL crabcakes, you have to come to Maryland. ;)

My brother-in-law from SoCal introduced me to Old Bay.  Not sure where he picked it up…maybe from a fishing trip with some Marylanders...
Yes, squid and lobsters are caught in thousands every day, they are very cheap in my region. Besides, my uncle is a fisherman. He made some pretty good money out of it. But I've always felt sorry for living things, especially seeing them sold and then cooked. I've always felt sorry for them. Perhaps this is a childish outburst, but I'm still feeling sad just realizing they were once alive. Maybe that's why I became vegan. No judge pls. It just makes me feel better. But damn, what I realized is that I find it hard to get certain vegan foods. Has anyone ever heard of such services like this - If so, share some experience please.
