PRESSURES

SOLUTIONS

Signal Crayfish have been most recently recorded on this water body in 2009. Signal Crayfish cause changes to the natural bankside habitat and also out-compete our native crayfish. They are fierce predators and can completely change fish and invertebrate communities so that they are no longer in their natural state.

There is currently no known solution to the invasion of Signal Crayfish, regular monitoring is needed to ensure a strategic approach when a solution has been identified.

 

There is no data due to a lack of biological monitoring within this water body.
