More ‘Sky Prawns’

One of the commenters on my previous post on this subject reported that the Rabbi of Elat had determined that the locust swarm that hit Elat this week was not of the kosher species. I have now received first hand testimony that this is not the case. R Ari Zivotofsky reports on the Avodah mailing list that
there is NO question that this is the species for which there is a mesorah [tradition]. I know many who have checked, and I too, though less expert, also checked.
But marketing them as ‘sky prawns’ still seems rather counterproductive in the Israeli market...
