White Clawed Crayfish population discovered!

A white clawed crayfish, Austropotamobius Pallipes, population has been discovered in Somerset! This is fantastic news and very exciting to our team. However, this just goes to show that you never really know what is hidden away in watercourses near to you, please double down on your efforts to Check, Clean & Dry before using new water courses! This is an endangered native crayfish, their numbers have fallen by over 75% since the mid-seventies when the invasive Signal crayfish became more widespread.
