Provide larger and more humane tanks for live seafood at restaurants.

It has always bothered me to be having a meal at a restaurant and noticing crabs, lobsters and fish crammed into the same tiny tank with no space to swim and move freely. Although these animals are destined to be someones dinner it does not mean they should be treated this way beforehand. Sometimes they can be in the same tank for over a week before they are removed for consumption. These animals deserve the right to have space to swim and move freely in larger tanks and to also be separated from each other- fish with fish, crabs with crabs etc as the crabs and lobsters do nip the fish causing them harm. I believe that if it is legal for live animals to be kept on a restaurants premises for consumption then they should legally have to provide a better living environment for them and this would be easily achievable as larger tanks are not expensive and most restaurants have ample room for them to be provided.
