This is the text (if you need help).

Chefs in the U.K. may soon change how they cook seafood. They will stop boiling it alive. Research from the London School of Economics shows that sea creatures feel pain. It said creatures like lobsters, squid, octopuses and crabs have feelings. The researchers looked at 300 different studies.

One researcher said some sea creatures experience pain more than others. He said restaurants must change the way they treat and kill sea creatures. He also said people need training. They need to know how to kill sea creatures without hurting them. The UK government said it wants to protect animals.

Back to the lobsters lesson.
