Frog Legs "les cuisses de grenouilles"
Consumption of frogs' legs in France totals 3000 to 4000 tons per year
(60 to 80 million frogs). With a population of 60 million, that makes only 60 gr
[2 oz] per Frenchman, which means that, contrary to what many foreigners
believe, frogs' legs are not so popular in France ! Frog is now a protected
species in France so much frogs' legs are imported, in particular from Indonesia.
Frogs' legs are also light with 70 calorie per 100 gr [3.5 oz].
A suggestion to prepare frogs' legs very simply : Dip them into flour then fry
them in a non-stick pan with olive oil and crushed garlic ; 5 to 10 minutes
will be enough. Delicious !

They were also accused of destroying the tidal zone on the west coast ...... A person without income can easily make a couple hundred a day selling scavanged sea creatures to the chineese live markets in San Francisco. Just head for Stockton St. with a bag full of mariscos.
In my direct observation from the bow of a fishing vessel The Asian fishing trawlers have no respect for our laws making trawling within one mile of the shore forbidden.
Also from my direct observation, people from British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and California, completely ignore all fishing laws when they are in Mexicos' Baja California.

A good bull frog may be up to a foot in length and they are very loud.
The way they are hunted is by a pair of hunters called "Frog giggers", one with a flashlight and the other, a gig (a long pole with a small trident on the end).
The giggers wade along the shallows of a pond, following the sounds of the croaks. The flashlight stuns the frog, making it immobile and the gigger spears the frog and puts it in a rucksack.
The legs are floured and pan fried.
