So, what is crustacea?

Crustacea is a class of arthropods that includes creatures such as crabs, lobsters, and shrimp. These animals are known for their hard exoskeletons and jointed limbs, which make them excellent swimmers and predators. Crustacea can be found in many different aquatic environments, from freshwater rivers to saltwater oceans. They are an important source of protein and nutrients for humans and other animals, and are commonly used in cuisines around the world. While some people may be allergic to crustaceans, they are generally considered safe to consume and offer a delicious and nutritious addition to any meal.
