    Green lobsters?

    I think there might be a few of those in the Gowanus Canal. They glow as well I believe.

    The only things that swim in the Gowanus Canal are Coney Island Whitefish.

    There is a better variety around the Hook or in back of the Point off BA beach.

    Eat at your own risk!
