The "cockroach of the sea" reference is not used in the scientific sense making reference to its classification in the animal kingdom. It is used more as a descriptor referencing the commonality of their feeding behaviors (scavenger) and the color similarity of internal structures. Cockroaches when stepped on reveal a white internal material which is compared to the white meat of a lobster's tail. [R.Q.]
