I for one would love to try it...
II still am pretty sure I could manage to culture shrimp/crab/lobster
pieces using standard single layer cloning by emulating the old school
surimi [remember the stuff? They made a thin sheet of surimi, then
rolled it like a spool of paper and held it together with 'meat glue']
As long as the flavor came out properly in manufacture, it would be
seriously popular as long as the price point was drastically less than
the real deal. I mean, a 1.5 pound lobster at $12.99 a pound where the
meat to shell/innards ratio sucks [the average tail is roughly 4 oz, the
claw meat is around 3 oz, so 7 oz out of 24 oz sucks, that is why the
picked out meat runs around $25 to 30 a pound] but if you could get it
to where it was $12 a pound for pure meat .... not rocket science!
