In southwestern Europe (Portugal, Spain, and France) and in the northern half in Finland especially, larger lampreys are still a highly prized delicacy . Sea lamprey is the most sought-after species in Portugal and one of only two that can legally bear the commercial name "lamprey" ( lampreia ): the other one being Lampetra fluviatilis , the European river lamprey , both according to Portaria (Government regulation no. 587/2006, from 22 June).

This technology is a fusion of smartphone technology, voice activation, and a set of non prescription glasses. Essentially, the wearer can record what they are seeing through voice activation, have map routes superimposed on their field of vision, browse the internet through touch controls and have live video chats in the corner of the glasses lens. Earlier this month, an FCC filing revealed that Google Glass will be including bone conduction integrated into the technology! Few details have been released about the applications of this feature, but the potential for the hearing industry is incredible.
