Crayfish in sea – no glut, unfortunately (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

langouste

'crayfish' is the definition.
('langouste' can be a synonym of 'crayfish')

'sea no glut unfortunately' is the wordplay.
'unfortunately' indicates anagramming the letters.
'sea'+'no'+'glut'='seanoglut'
'seanoglut' anagrammed gives 'LANGOUSTE'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for langouste that I've seen before include "Shellfish" , "something to eat" , "One in the sea" , "It may be eaten roasted" , "Crayfish" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
