Details

The overall objective of the project was to provide a review of the current knowledge concerning alien crayfish eradication and to develop a project plan for testing suitable methods of eradication based on this knowledge. Most information for the literature review was obtained from published work but significant use was made of unpublished information from other sources such as personal knowledge and contacts. The project was undertaken as part of the Biodiversity Action Plan for the native crayfish with a view to identifying actions to help protect remaining populations from the alien species.
