Subject: RE: SONG CHALLENGE: Barbie Lobster Tale
Small prawn size lobster (salt water) looking thing - harvested on beaches with a "Yabbie pump" which is a suction tube used to lift wet and up to expose them - these are small size and were often used as live bait for line fishing.

Also larger (fresh water) specimens harvested from dams (in Oz, a man made pond - not necessarily associated with a stream or running water) casually (especially by kids years ago) or now farmed commercially from large ponds. These were usually called "Lobbies" -
Tasty.
