I have no idea why, but I really enjoy food related trivia.
So I've decided to start a thread here, where we can all post food trivia questions and answers.

I'll start with the seafood category.

#1
The largest lobster pound in the world is located in what world reknowned bay?
(Bonus.....Name the specific island)

#2
If you see me kissing a cod, what island am I likely on?

#3
Of all the molluscan shellfish, which is the only one that actually swims?

#4
Prince Edward Island, in the Canadian maritimes, is famous for four things;
Potatoes, Anne of Green Gables, Lobster and WHAT?

#5
Decades ago, as an experiment, Soviet Marine Biologists took this large Crustacean from the North Pacific and tranplanted it to the Barents Sea, where today it has become a very valuable fishery. What is it?

These are fairly tough questions, Good Luck!
