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!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
