Summer is the peak season for Chinese people to consume freshwater lobsters, also called crayfish. Every day in Wuhan, China, a large amount of crayfish are being sold and sent to various places.

However, during the sorting and packing, these crayfish will seize every chance to escape while people aren’t paying attention.

For example, at Bai Sha Zhou Agricultural Market in Wuhan, a fair amount of crayfish escape from baskets and find their way into the sewer. Some peddlers, after finding this out, go there to collect the lobsters from the foul water to re-sell them.

In order not to be found out by others, they store what they catch in a restroom, where some even process the dead ones into “lobster balls.”

The photos below were secretly shot by a Netease user, Wang Haofeng, on June 20.
