   We've always drowned ours or frozen them.

I saw there was a bit of huha over the killing of the cray in the last MKR NZ, I thought she did the right thing - knife through the brain? It was quick.

There's no correct way, there's only the politically correct way of the day and even then people can't agree

Drown it in fresh water is the most humane.

Apparently drowning is one of the worst, the most humane is to chill for at least several hours which puts it's nervous system to sleep and then a knife between the eyes.

They don't have a central nervous system but one spread throughout their body - so knocking them out with cold is the best way so they don't feel anything.

well, f**k it, if you're going to kill something, make it as humane as possible or stop catching the freaky things to eat. Pretty simple.
